Coming to Cardiff

How much money should I bring?

You should bring enough money to cover your costs for the first 2 weeks as you would if you were going on holiday. You will probably have to buy bedding, clothes and some basic essentials at the beginning of your stay, so we recommend you bring about £400.

Do not bring large amounts of cash, as cash can easily be lost and the University cannot guard it for you. We recommend you bring travellers’ cheques as they are insured against loss and theft. Any bank or post office will cash travellers’ cheques.
