Coming to Cardiff

What type of clothes should I bring?

Students dress very informally in the UK wearing jeans, t-shirts and jumpers.

You will also want to bring a warm jumper, jacket and waterproof coat with you for the winter and wet weather. Rain showers are to be expected any time of the year, so waterproof clothing and shoes are essential. We recommend that you do not buy too many winter clothes until you get to Cardiff.

In addition to casual clothes, you may want to bring formal clothes for special events such as a formal dinner or a ball, or perhaps if you are likely to attend an interview for a potential job. You may also want to bring your national costume for international student events.
