It may not be academia-related - but the best thing about my course was meeting my coursemates and developing a friendship with those I wouldn't
have met otherwise. The course deadlines, presentations, and even Bute Building itself brought us together!
Cardiff University has a great reputation. My brother attended the university,
as well as other friends, who all commented on how great their university life had been. Of course, the course was the main attraction, and the fact that it wasn't too far away from home (Swansea).
Cardiff's social life is something else! There is literally something for everyone! The union provides so much stuff to do, and Cardiff itself has a buzzing nightlife.
Being the capital of Wales, you're never left with nothing to do. With Bute park just down the road for example, my summer term will be spent with my friends in the park in the sun.
Cardiff is not too big but not too small. It's such a friendly city with plenty to do and see. The university is one you can depend on, and being a member of such a prestigious union means that you will always feel a part of something, without even having to try.
At Cardiff I've enjoyed the best days of my life so far, I will be sad to leave and will remember it with a smile.
