    Good overall but poor remote learning

    Overall the experience thus far has been really good but like most universities and courses there were some clear struggles with the shift to remote learning and then a rush to go back to ‘normal’ after restrictions began lifting that has seen notably lower attendance in lectures and seminars. The course is interesting and many of the professors are engaging and passionate, although a few seem somewhat disinterested.

    Great Student Life - Teaching Could Be Improved

    I enjoyed my time at Cardiff University. It was a really fun environment to be in, the city isn’t too big so it was really easy to meet people. I liked that the university accepts a large number of international students, so it was easy to meet people from all over the world.

    I stayed in private accommodation, rather than the university halls, and absolutely loved where I lived. It was right in the city centre, and because everything is so close in Cardiff, it was a really convenient place to be.

    I found the lectures interesting, and I really enjoyed the topics I chose in my final year. The only issue was the lack of help I received in my final year and issues with contacting and communicating with my tutor and some lecturers. I found myself pushing to get responses and severely lacked support, and guidance when it came to my final project and exams. This wasn’t the case for everyone, and some had great experiences.

    The main thing I would highlight is to bring issues you have up with lecturers early and to communicate clearly with your tutors and lecturers if there is something you require, be it guidance, or extra information. It is very easy to get lost in the sea of students and often when you request some help or to have a query cleared, it is too late.

    When I went through a difficult time however, the university was extremely helpful, and I will forever appreciate how they considered my case and made the appropriate adjustments for me. It was their understanding that enabled me to graduate with the grade I did.

    Overall Cardiff is a wonderful place to study. The city is affordable, it is easy to meet people and it is a very safe place.

    Psychiatry

    This programme was fully remote which was great as it allowed me to work alongside studying. I was able to complete all lectures at times that suited me as they were all pre-recorded.
    Support was available readily and I was able to email my personal tutor for any help or support that I needed.
    For each module there were group zoom calls to check in with the tutors and other students to discuss coursework and lectures.
    The lectures were very informative and helpful for all my coursework.

    About course

    I liked that the course covered a wide range of subjects. All the professors were helpful, although we as students expected detailed feedback on our assignments so that we could do better. We felt that the feedback was very generic and vague. The student life here is amazing. And there are people from all over the world.

    Very nice school

    Made many friends and there were lots of activities. However, I’m not quite used to the class starting at noon, normally it’s my lunchtime but I have to stay at class during the program. Beyond that, everything is good.

    Nice experience

    Great learning experience, the school provided a lot of support during my studies. The school is very international and often holds lectures or offers English courses for international students like me. For me, life on campus has not been very difficult. I would like to see some adjustments in the content of the courses for my study life, there are too few classes but the content is a bit extensive. Sometimes it’s too late to digest and understand, and there’s no way to remember the knowledge.

    Professors

    Teachers are all good, they are very patient with students’ questions and always willing to help students. The location of the school is too separated, so it’s not easy for students in different majors to communicate.

    Student‘s life at Cardiff

    The uni offers us convenient and diverse student services. Especially for international students, we have extra support in the language. Staffs overall are friendly and helpful, my problem can be solved effectively most of the time. As for the student’s life, I didn’t participate in many activities as they were not that appealing to me. I hope that there may be more interesting events for international students to let them feel fit in this big family.

    I would highlight the experience of the student community

    I thoroughly enjoyed the support from the staff and the unique opportunity of the differing module options. Furthermore, the ENCAP writing support are a wonderful aid when you have any immediate questions as they always reply rapidly. Cardiff University is a supportive institution in a lively city and has been a wonderful experience.
