What was really good about the experience?

Life in Cardiff was great, everything was within reach and so convenient, at the same time it wasn't too fast paced or stressful. Course lecturers were really nice & understanding, even though they weren't the best at explaining things. The course itself was interesting, but defo not for beginners or someone without a strong background in the field (3D design, interior design, scenic construction), as the lecturers won't go through the basic skills with newbies.

What could be improved?

I absolutely didn't feel the existance of the uni's student union, not many social events organized, & if there were any, they were only at Treforest campus so students in other campuses can't really go there all the time. I was lucky to be in Cardiff campus so there were much better entertainments or nightlife there. Other staff in the universities like student advisors, international admissions, etc were not helpful & took a lifetime to response to simple enquiries or requests, whether through calls or emails. Filled in a form to register with a GP, handed it to the Advice Center as told & turned out it was never submitted, so I had a hard time with any health related problems. And no on-site sport facilities for students. You have to sign up for gyms around the city. All in all, not good value for money, especially for international students.
