Right quote

I'm glad I chose to study chemistry because every day I learn something new that blows my mind. The structure of the course at Cardiff has allowed me to balance studies with extracurricular activities such as sports and societies which I believe is integral to everyone's university experience. I believe that this course will open many doors for my future and I am going to look into doing a PhD once I graduate.
