Cardiff is often described as "the perfect student city" because it is an exciting capital city but also safe and affordable.
Cardiff is a small city located in South Wales, with a population of about 350,000 people. Approximately 20% of the population are students, which makes it safe, friendly and affordable.
Cardiff however is also a capital city with all the culture, sports, shopping, entertainment and atmosphere you would expect of a modern European metropolis. It is also the home of Doctor Who.
This means you get a small cheap city you can easily walk around, but also an exciting city where there is always something to do.
On the way to lectures I still get excited when I walk by Cardiff Castle and realise there's a castle in the place I live!
