I had visited Cardiff and fell in love with all it has to offer as a capital city.

When I visited again, I was led around the campus on a personal tour by a member of the international office. It was then, that Cardiff University became my first choice.

I think that there is a huge bonus in pursuing an education internationally, and Cardiff University has given me a great amount of support as an international student.

Cardiff University is a great, energetic setting to get involved and make your educational experience memorable. Cardiff is a fun, cultural city and its location to other travel destinations makes it perfect for hosting.
