Both the Millennium Stadium and Motorpoint Arena host huge names in music. Well known sports teams also play at the Millennium Stadium, SWALEC stadium and Cardiff City Stadium.

As well as relaxing and eating ice cream, students can practice their surfing and sailing skills at the beach which is less than an hour from Cardiff City.

Met some great people but my course was very disorganised, little feedback given and some terrible lecturers. No body seemed to have an idea on what we should be doing. Transferring to another Uni.
