Unbelievable atmosphere within Cardiff university, greatly appreciate the staff and the buildings are amazing, the placement of the buildings are well thought out and the student union stands above many other universities around the uk.

Great place, lots to do and to see. Some of the halls are too far out of the city so therefore isolated the students slightly. However great students union and great city

Student union is fantastic; cheap drinks, plenty of events and takes on all student feedback. Facilities are very good, 24/7 library access with up to date tech and book resources. Courses are engaging and respond to all feedback.

The campus is a brilliant campus, everything is within walking distance but also isn’t too cramped, and is intermingled with other parts of city life

Good teaching, great facilities, the SU is mad big. Biosci seems taught well, no complaints about the lecturers tbh. The city itself is grand too

Amazing University. The fact that it is in a city with so much going in is brilliant and the fact that it's not a massive city either means it's very hard to fee overwhelmed. The night life is brilliant with club student nights daily. The SU has so much to offer with food, advice and of course the nightclub. My course is quite tough, but the teaching is excellent and the resources in the libraries and elsewhere are the best available. Biggest downside is the halls. There are many nice ones, it's just mine which is not the best.

This university is a great place to study which offers very talented lecturers in the engineering sector and this is the section I’m studying at. Cardiff university has many facilities available to the students including a students union which is a good meeting place for new people and it has lots of social entertainment. The course I am studying is electrical and electronic engineering and this is a great course which I would recommend to others because the modules and the content is very well delivered and it is exciting to work in the laboratories to produce circuits of different kinds and see what it’s capabilities are.

The university is situated in one of the best student cities in the country. With the main body of the campus stretching along one road between the accommodation and the city centre. Nothing is Cardiff is too far to walk, which is great. The facilities at the university are always improving with millions being pumped into a centre for student life. Sadly the support of the physics department is detriment to student life. We are the bottom of the priority sometimes and do not get the support we are paying for

As a Gay man I have never felt isolated by the university and there is a large LGBT+ society

There are plenty of doctors around Cardiff that are student friendly, albeit treat us like second classs citizens. The university has a good health support centre although it can be difficult to get an appointment

The location of the campus is perfect, right next to the city centre of Cardiff, which is an amazing city in every single aspect. The uni itself is also amazing, the sheer amount of courses means there's so many to choose from! The staff are always there to help and have been amazing help to me at my time here! The only reason I didn't score it 5/5 was the career services, I feel the courses and uni are very much academic based and I haven't had a lot of careers insight, some but not much

Better than Swansea, what more do you need? Mixture of gorgeous old architechture and new buildings, libraries and online services make accessing materials easy, and the social life is great - there's always something going on.

Cardiff University have been very swift at dealing with my late entry enquiry and then the course has been interesting. There are also plenty facilities around Cardiff and the engineering buildings are located very close to the town centre which is great for lunch breaks. All in all a pleasant experience so far.

Cardiff university has an amazing campus but depending on where your lecture theatres are, it is a bit of pain to walk from building to building every day. I’m currently in my first year and studying law, so far the course has been amazing and most of the tutorials have been beneficial to me. Sometimes the lecturers go through the PowerPoints too quickly so it is easy to miss some points they make. Thankfully, they upload all the recordings for a week so you can check if you’ve missed anything. However, since I’ve started there always seems to be something wrong with the technology they use in the lecture theatres, either with the microphone or the projectors not working. In all fairness, they have tried to resolve this but at the moment it still hasn’t been fixed properly. Aside from that the library and learning central online is very helpful. The students union is also an extremely nice facility on campus. There are many places to go to do some work quietly or have group discussions. There are also quite a few food and drink shops which are reasonably priced for students. They also have a bookshop and WHSmith and places to get your hair done on the bottom floor, which is an additional bonus. They also regularly hold gigs in the Great Hall. From what I’ve seen of the careers service they provide exceptional services, they send weekly emails about jobs and placements relevant to you and your course. But they also provide a service where they team up with companies such as the Principality Stadium, who offer part time jobs to students to help. You have to sign up to this service, but it is beneficial as it offers regular shifts weekly. My over all experience of the university so far has been amazing, however one thing I do think they should improve on is their organisational skills, as when I first started the first few weeks were complete shambles and new students didn’t know where they were coming or going. Aside from that, it’s been good so far.

The campus has beautiful 19th century buildings which are even more impressive on the inside than on the outside. Going to class everyday in an area that is steeped in history really adds to the university experience and makes you feel like a real academic. Although some buildings might be old the facilities are modern and labs and lecture theatres are equipped with the latest technologies. The student's union provides a hub for everything from food, partying, skills enhancement, a university run estate agent and more. The career service is available everyday and will help you develop your CV, interview skills and provides guidance on your future career choices.

The university is pretty much right in the City Centre, so you're near a lot of things to do. the university buildings themselves are quite a mix, most are absolutely fine on the inside, a lot are really lovely and well kept. There are quite a few buildings (Law, Psychology for example) that are particularly ugly looking on the outside, but that shouldn't put you off! the facilities are great for my course (history) with the library very conveniently placed. The Students union is another of the ugly buildings, but its great in actuality. It has everything you need and is always a fun night out. The over all experience has been great so far, everyone has been really helpful and the majority of the lecturers are really great.

Cardiff uni is GREAT! You have all of the benefits of living in a capital city with awesome venues, nightlife and history but compacted into a tiny city. The university buildings are a beautiful mix of grandeous, old school buildings and modern, high tech facilities. I think the student population is somewhere around the 30,000s meaning that the general atmosphere walking around Cardiff is very friendly and inclusive. The students union is giant! I mean it’s really big, it even has a railway line going through it! Cardiff uni is amazing and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.

Outstanding university. Amazing staff and facilities. Loved every moment in this bustling city. Highly suggest any fresher to go to the Taf, Coco Gelato and Cafe 37. Unbeatable.

amazing university, the course is structured perfectly with respectable and determine staff who provide plenty of support. The Student union is a major component to why Cardiff University is so great. It provides a wide range of facilities and uses from a pub, co-op, post office to 2 hall rooms perfect for events and Venues. The nightlife is fantastic in Cardiff and it's a perfect size city to travel on foot with plenty of beautiful sites such as Cardiff bay and Bute park to increase the city's beauty and heritage

Nice city campus but some uni halls are too far away from the buildings. Should have more 24 hrs library and common study area and sports facilities but overall still a good place
