The course provides lots of tutorials which gives a chance to go over work we've learnt and ask the tutors questions. Many of the tutorials are also practical so you have the chance to use the equipment and try out the routine positionIng in a classroom environment. The tutors are generally approachable and have a lot of time for students who are willing to put the effort in. All the way through the course if there's something that I've been struggling with there has always been someone I can go to.×

The accommodation is really good. Lots of my friends have come to visit from other universities, and have said that it is better than their's. I have a shared bathroom, and I was worried about it at first, but it is cleaned every day, so there have been no problems.×

Cardiff has a very varied nightlife. There are numerous pubs, clubs and restaurants that cater for all tastes and cultures. A lot of the venues have student nights with food/drink promotions on various nights. Cardiff student union has a nightclub called Solus that is excellent on a Wednesday and Revolution also has good student nights.×

The university offers a diverse range of courses, many of which can be tailored to suit the interests of the student, for example Genetics offers a wide range of modules which can be chosen by the student allowing the student to chose the subjects which they are interested in and leave out those which they are not, all in all helping the student work towards a specific job role or area of the subject which they may be interested in. A number of the lecturers teach in a modern, easy to understand way and are able to communicate difficult concepts to students in a way that makes the student feel able and confident. There is a diverse night and social life with a wide range of sports and social clubs to join making it easy to make new friends with similar interests.×

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.
