What students think

High achieving students from all disciplines gravitate towards Cardiff University every year. As a top performing university and member of the Russell Group, students can expect a quality educational experience, and therefore should aim to achieve competitive entry grades. Those interested in sport (particularly rugby and rowing) will enjoy Cardiff's competitive edge with their annual Welsh Varsity against Swansea University held every April. The Welsh Varsity rugby has been heralded by some as a close second to its Oxbridge counterpart.
