Things start out great in the early years. But third year onwards is awful. It is mostly independent learning. Finals exams for all medical schools are called osces, and Cardiff only gives you two: one in second year, and then your finals in 4th year (this time 5th year). Cardiff does very little to prepare you for these. The format of the exams is often a surprise and inconsistent with the only mock you receive 2 years prior to your finals. read more

Lots of hard work- there is a lot of self-directed learning. However, this is in conjunction with tutorials, practicals and teaching on placement. Doctors in Wales are friendly and generally happy to help. It's also a good place to get involved in research- Cardiff is at the forefront in neuropsychology. read more

Poorly organised throughout, neither student nor teacher knows what is fully expected of them, C21 is far inferior to the previous course although it’s easier as you’re taught far less. Cardiff is for students who have mostly been rejected from other med schools and as one ITU consultant said to me in third year “I’m surprised Cardiff is still producing competent doctors at this rate” read more
