What the students say...

What was the best thing about your course?

The course at JOMEC is a contemporary degree dealing with things happening in the world right now - it combines critical thinking and media literacy with
ideas of how one can become a better, and contributing citizen.

Why did you choose to study at Cardiff University?

Because of its outstanding reputation.

Describe the Cardiff social life?

I'm perhaps the wrong one to ask!

Why would you recommend Cardiff to potential students?

As a mature student, I approached the course with some caution and trepidation. Within 5 minutes of walking through the front door, I felt welcomed and at home. The academic and administration staff and student body combine to make Cardiff, and JOMEC in particular, a very special place to live and study.

Finally, describe your Cardiff experience in one sentence!

As I graduated when I was 50, my post university career will not be as long as that of my fellow students, but in numerous ways the experience has been life-changing for me, and all of them positive.
