    Testimonial from Zoe, Biosciences, UK, 2021, student at Cardiff University

    Cardiff really is surrounded by some scenic gems. It’s in the middle of everything and is so well connected with transport links that you can get pretty much everywhere and anywhere you want.

    Testimonial from Ellie, Journalism, UK, 2020, student at Cardiff University

    I chose Cardiff because it felt right. It was the first open day I attended and even on that first visit I just really liked the feel of the city, with it already feeling like home.
