Postgraduate Reviews of Courses at Cardiff University

Archaeology (MA)

CARDIFF UNIVERSITY

Student Reviewer - April 2021

Despite the difficulties of Covid, I have thoroughly enjoyed my course. The support has been brilliant, and the course content is interesting as well as fun. The lecturers are still trying to include extracurricular activities such as trips in a safe way, making sure we don't miss out. Extra Covid funding has been supplied if needed and those registered disabled with the uni have been provided with grants to make their learning experience easier. The online learning has proven successful and all staff have been very understanding and supportive during these difficult times. read full review
This course lasts 18 months, as far as I concerned it might have been a year. Due to covid, I could not use university places, utulities, etc. To sum up, except for duration of course and a module, I could say that it might be an option to choose MSc physiotherapy. As perspective of Cardiff, it has fantastic environment with historical places. read full review

CARDIFF UNIVERSITY

Student Reviewer - April 2021

I was really enjoying my time in the university and experiemce of completing a PhD but COVID has diminished the fun of it somewhat. It has still provided me great experience but I have found working from home parricularly challenging. read full review
Im sure there is more to the university as due to the pandemic it cant operate fully, but this aside there was a flaw in the student support where university offers laptops to the students in need, my laptop had crashed and I couldn’t repair it due to covid. The student support for the laptop didn’t revet yet and it has been almost a month. Love the online lectures and the practicals whenever necessary read full review
Cardiff Uni has a lot of positive as well as negative aspects in terms of an MSc Clinical Optometry. It is really good in terms of the educational content but I feel it can improve on having more practical days with patient interaction. read full review
The overall university experience has been alright so far given the circumstances. The remote learning has been as good as it could possibly be. However in terms of the value for money for an international student, it has not been good. read full review
I'd say that the best part about my university experience was the people that I've been fortunate enough to meet. I suppose this could have happened at any institution, and I certainly got lucky. But Cardiff has an excellent reputation, so it's not a surprise that it would attract people who want to study and succeed, but also interact with others. Having said that, I am studying on a communications masters, so my experience will likely be different to other courses!

The academic staff in my school are clearly passionate about their roles, but I have found the standard of teaching to her very hit and miss from lecturer to lecturer. The course is also undergoing a transition in terms of content, and I feel like we definitely got caught in the middle of that.

The university and city both have a fantastic feel about them. I've loved living and studying in Cardiff. It's affordable, and offers an excellent study/life balance. I feel positive about my job prospects - despite Covid-19 - and feel proud to have the university on my CV. read full review
I like it here. The place is nice and the people are nice. Overall a good experience for a one year program. Not sure I’d stay on for a PhD though, the programs lack diversity. read full review
Good first term. Has been slightly difficult settling into an entirely different university experience. The course is amazing and has created opportunities to socialise with coursemates. read full review
Great experience, lots of opportunities, and quality campus, facilities and services. Location is ideal wherever you are placed. Accommodation is one of the cheapest in the UK and the SU has been nominated numerous times for its services and facilities. read full review
