What our students say

I was offered a postion at China National Engineering Research Centre for Human Settlements this month. This centre is a primary technology pillar unit for China’s undertakings in the area of human settlement technologies, with China Architecture Design & Research Group being its parent organisation. Before this month, I have been working at this centre as an intern for about four months. I remember the day when I was interviewed, my boss said to me, because of my graduating from Cardiff University, she offered me this interview opportunity. I have never been as proud as that moment.
