Amazing university for sport especially, with excellent facilities for teaching and performing. Great opportunities for career development and work experience, with good student support services and great nightlife.
Amazing University! The campuses are both easily accsessable and modern, with computers provided. Cyncoed lecture rooms are spacious and comfortable. Cyncoed Campus accommodation is also at a great price and wonderful. The student union provide good events and societies.
No tutor time, no enthusiasm within course, no structure which lead to no satisfaction with course or learning, failing to upload my essays online so missed the deadline. All round a s**t year. Bye met
