Student views

Cardiff University was at the top of my list, both for its renowned academic environment and unique classroom teaching methods.

Faisal Ibne Wali, MBA

I love the Student's Union, it gives me the feeling that I belong somewhere, and a chance to be heard. I can develop and discover many skills, plus it is a great place to relax after a long day of lectures.
