Cardiff Met is such a friendly Uni which splits into two campus': Llandaff and Cyncoed. They may not be the biggest campus', but they are always trying to develop and make things more modern. The Uni is not in the city but extremely close. All halls of residence are nice, clean and modern. Staff are extremely friendly,, the facilities are great and there are plenty of resources for all students to use. The equality and diversity of this uni is brilliant!

Being part of the LGBT community - it was important for me to find a uni that supports everyone and is very inclusive of all nationalities, faiths, sexualities and beliefs. This university is extremely supportive and inclusive.
Health and wellbeing services: 
This university is definitely for the student! So friendly, welcoming, understanding and helpful. There is lots of help and support available.

Nice modern buildings, great facilities with a lot of programs to choose from to do your assignments. My course is very exciting with great help from my tutor and teachers. Career services are good because we often have career fairs in our campus and 2 career services specialists that help you anytime when you see them or even just email them. I have great experience from lectures and seminars as my timetable is well organised as well as my home studying.

I'm from Slovakia and been here for 10 years but I've met a lot of exchange students and they are very well supported and put into the right courses to help with assignments.
