The student union can get things changed, which is great- for example we had funding for art supplies cut and after a bit of negotiation it was reinstated thanks to the art members of the student union. Otherwise, they do a good few events and organise a good freshers etc. but on the societies front it's a bit weak. I was quite surprised to see the lack of a debate/public speaking clubs, or the lack of many clubs that aren't sports. There are a few fun ones, like the illustration society, the film club and the knitting club. Also I have to admit that anyone proposing a new society gets full support in their actions- I think it's simply a matter of too many different faculties on one campus that don't really mix, making any large society a difficult thing to organise.×

Well, now that the School of Art and Design is on the same campus as the business school etc in Llandaff, all of the creative students are about the place. The school itself is really interesting and at christmas/end of year the school will benefit from the fair of students work that we sell. There is also an open school of art that gives lessons for a reasonable price in the school of art. Students from other faculties are free to wander about the school of art whenever they like, and there are open gallery spaces that display the student's work on a regular basis.×
The accomodation is fine, with all facilities and transport very close to handReport

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.
