      Nightlife

      There's just so many places to go! The most popular depends on the night but I would say. Monday- Glam Tuesday- RevsWednesday- soda or Cardiff Uni's SUThursday- Gassy Jacks then Walkabout Friday- Pryzm, glam or sodaSaturday- Cardiff SU (or pryzm if you have loads of money) Sunday- Soda I don't really go to pubs because I like to pre drink at home to save money then go straight to the clubs. Oooo also if all else fails Live lounge is quite a popular destination, I've never really been though.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
