One of these Insiders is Aimee-Louise Paddock, a first year student at the School of Music. Aimee-Louise was one of six finalists in the University’s Thrive Challenge last year, a unique opportunity to win a scholarship for life at Cardiff University.

Aimee-LouiseWhen asked during the challenge why she wanted to study music at Cardiff, Aimee-Louise said:

“The BMUS music course looks really interesting and covers a variety of music subjects. The university's reputation is very good.I really like Cardiff as a city and think it will be a nice place to live. Due to being profoundly deaf an important factor for me was how the disability advisors and music staff reacted when I asked them about what help I could be given and if any areas of the course would need to be adapted. These staff members were exceptionally helpful compared to other universities I contacted.

"I have chosen to study music because it is my passion. Music is such a big part of my life and I enjoy it so much. I thought that it was important to choose the subject that I would love studying and that subject for me definitely is music. Also I am always looking for ways to expand my musical knowledge and the next step is studying music at university.”
