Right quote

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.
