Student life

Cardiff is a great location for the study of music. The city’s rich artistic culture combines Wales’ strong musical traditions with contemporary trends.

My year spent in Cardiff was one of the most academically nurturing times of my life. I found the course leaders and lecturers to be incredibly supportive of my personal growth as a student and very willing to advise me in regard to various assignments. They were generous with their time and efforts to answer all of the MANY questions I had. I had a truly great experience at Cardiff - I cannot recommend it heartily enough.
