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.

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

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.

The university and its buildings are excellent! All the lectures and tutorials are organised perfectly and the business school which is where I study is premium! However, the only thing some of the lecturers and tutorial leaders (who are usually PhD students) are quite tricky to understand due to their foreign accent. With a fast course this can sometimes be hard to deal with! Other than that cardiff university is perfect and a great place to be.

Fantastic uni, very supportive and offers a lot of aid for students in many different ways. The only downside is their lack of organisation in some areas, which they are working on.

Most of the lecturers are really good at what they do. The facilities are good. The course is full on but it is just enough that it's not too much. I've received a ton of help from the university with bursarys, etc. Because I came from a poorer background and it has been such a help.

Amazing university but not enough support for struggling students. Whether they’re struggling with the course itself, or funding. There just does not seem to be enough support or resources available.

It takes a rather long time to get an appointment to see a counsellor if the service is required, however the counsellors are great.

I’m a first year law student at Cardiff University, and I must admit my experience so far has not been what I was expecting. On the open days the university made a big hype about how excellent the teaching here is. But after two semesters, I’m certain I have taught myself more than the actual lecturers. On the first week they admitted the law course was more independent learning based, which is fine, but as I’ve discovered, the course is a tad bit too independent. I have spoken to fellow students in my course and they feel the same way. There is not enough support given to understand particularly hard topics either. I have resorted to the use of the internet to help me understand these particular topics. Not only that, but due to the strikes that have taken place this year, some of the lecturers have told us to teach ourselves the topic from a PowerPoint they have uploaded. This is disappointing as well as annoying, because this is not what I’m paying £9000 a year for. Not only that, but for other topics we have missed, the university has not come to a decision as to whether they will be included in our end of year exam, which is even more frustrating! Tutorials that have also been cancelled due to the strikes, the tutors have emailed, stating that they will not be rescheduled. This is unfair and gives some students a disadvantage, as not all of the tutors were striking, so some tutorials went ahead as normal while others were cancelled. These tutorials are designed specifically to help us understand the work better and ask questions if need be. It is because of that reason some students now have a disadvantage. I’ve been heavily disappointed with the teaching, as it does not reach the standards the university was making it out to be. The only excellent lecturer I’ve had this year is Cathy from the criminal module. She is excellent and actually provides additional information when lecturing, instead of just reading off a PowerPoint. Another disappointment is the Law Society. It costs £18 for a membership for a year, and since I started in September there has only been three socials. This is disappointing as the purpose of these socials was to meet others in the course, yet we’ve hardly had the chance to! I must admit, the society is excellent for arranging events to meet with law firms, but this seems to be the only benefit of joining this society. I have already decided I will not be joining again next year, as I do not believe it is worth the money. Aside from this, the facilities at the university are good. The student union is excellent and always holds lots of events. I would suggest for future students, if you’re not particularly fond of intense individual learning, then Cardiff University is not the best place for you. If I was told this before accepting my offer, I would have reconsidered going to this university.

Great city, but not enough consideration for students at university, languages degree is very poor and is not devoted enough to the language taught.

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

Before leaving school, I was in the debate as to whether or not was the right university for me. I was also in debate about whether my course (law and criminology) was right for me. My experience, over the past two years has confirmed to me that I made the right decision. Lecturers/professors/tutors are easy to talk to and easy to ask questions. They are also very supportive and understanding. The facilities are great -basic and in some areas dated, but that's the great thing about Cardiff. Besides, who doesn't want to bump into Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Who from time to time?

Main building is amazing and the libraries inside it are great, some of the older libraries like the ASS need to be refurbished. The SU is very old but is in the process of being remodeled. Depends on the course you do, some courses are very organised, other's not so much.
