What the guides say

Cover of Virgin Guide to British Universities 2012

Everything is within walking distance. Cardiff is a pretty small city, though it has more than adequate shops, nightlife and the Millennium Stadium. It is also well connected to the rest of the country by train.

The Virgin Guide to British Universities 2012

Sunday Times logo

Cardiff offers a compelling student experience: Russell Group research credentials, the full gamut of traditional undergraduate degree courses and relatively affordable living with hot and cold running nightlife on tap.
