Student views

I chose Cardiff primarily because it was identified as one of the best schools in the UK. I also did some research on the papers that the master’s degree students had produced which was really impressive and I wanted to be a part of that.

Shanahan Chua, Master in Business Administration

My favourite part of Cardiff would be the city centre - it's great area; it has all the shops and it is a really affordable city.
