Location & Facilities

The city of Cardiff offers an excellent location in which to live and study, ranked 7th among the Top 50 European Cities by Foreign Direct Investment magazine. It is the Capital city of Wales with all the culture, sports, work opportunities and atmosphere you would expect of a modern European metropolis, but Cardiff is also small enough to retain a very personal, friendly atmosphere, with a population of about 320,000 people, 10% of the population are students which makes it safe, friendly and affordable.

Cardiff was one of the UK's first multi-cultural cities and an estimated 94 languages are spoken here. This is a real advantage for international students because you will find that many of the food and ingredients you have in your country are also sold in Cardiff.

Cardiff has a vibrant cultural scene with an exciting programme of events all year round, from folk music and comedy, to food and film.

The University campus and residences are located in and around Cardiff's magnificent city centre, within easy walking distance of all local amenities.
