A fantastic student city
Cardiff is the capital of Wales and one of the most affordable student cities in the UK (NatWest Student Living Index 2020). It is safe and friendly, with students making up 20% of the population. Friendly and diverse, it has a vibrant culture with international restaurants, great entertainment and a modern waterfront.
On weekends, you can visit beautiful Welsh beaches, mountains and historic castles. London is two hours away by train and Cardiff is well-connected to other UK cities.
