Lidl is very close to campus, on the way to the main campus from the main accommodation direction, so getting cheap food is great, there is a very cheap noodle bar a little further out for eating out. There are plenty of pubs and student offers about, as well as the student union facilities. Textbooks and the like depend on courses and generally last multiple year and equipment to be bought is kept to a minimum. Transport is generally free as everything is within walking distance, in my 2 years at Cardiff I have taken a bus once to go the swimming pool near Cardiff bay.×

The European language department. I've learned nothing with Italian language this year it was much more complex in a level. Also I didn't like the start of the year where they didn't even organise my own timetable properly and they sent me back and forth from schools constantly for me to sort out my lesson clashes when surely they had all summer to do this??×

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.
