Cardiff city - Great place to study

I have made amazing friends with most of my course mates and Cardiff has lovely places for us to go out socialising. We love to go to Cardiff bay and Bute park when it’s nice and sunny, but for the rest of the time we have the mall, the cinema and of course the pubs.

I have made amazing friends with most of my course mates and Cardiff has lovely places for us to go out socialising. We love to go to Cardiff bay and Bute park when it’s nice and sunny, but for the rest of the time we have the mall, the cinema and of course the pubs. Cardiff is a wonderful small city full of students and has a lovely atmosphere to live in. I loved the end of term project in our first year. We had to work on a 20 minute group performance. I worked with some of my friends in my group and edited one of Gary Owens’s plays “Love Steals us from Loneliness”. We had three weeks to prepare before it was assessed and it was such a great experience and success. We also did a five-minute film on a beach, which was also fun and very successful. I like the performance and physical aspect of my course and learning how to use our bodies within a theatre space. I have always wanted to come over to the UK to study Drama. London had been an option, but being my first time to leave home, Cardiff seemed to be the perfect place to go as it’s a small city with great student life. Cardiff is also growing immensely in the artistic and theatrical world. show less

I enjoyed my final year living and studying at the University. The experience taught me how to become a good engineer but also how to be an excellent person. The University have great services for International students. The international student service were especially helpful; the people working there are patient and warm hearted and try their best to resolve every student’s problems, even if they seem very small. I was very grateful for their help. I studied for three years in BUCEA (Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture) in China and completed my final year at the University (3+1 programme). After completing the four-year course, I gained two BEng bachelor degrees; one from BUCEA and the other from the University. I have been working in KIGG which is based in Wales as a Development Engineer for nearly two years and the opportunities provided by the University have enabled me to be successful in this role. show less
