"One of my favourite aspects of the course at Cardiff is being able to have placements all around Wales. It's such a beautiful place, and it means you get to practice in such a wide variety of different communities - rural, inner city, massively deprived and very affluent. And being on away placements means that you make friends with peers that you otherwise might not have come into contact with, so by the end of the course everyone knows everyone, which makes it a really friendly environment to be in."
