Cardiff is the capital city of Wales, home to the Welsh National Assembly, and it's a fabulous place to work, live, study or visit. Although it’s quite compact for a major city, it’s highly popular with tourists who come for the scenery (e.g. Bute Park and Cardiff Castle, Cardiff Bay barrage and the recently regenerated dockland area) and stay for the abundance of nightlife, culture and sporting events.
There are plenty of things to do if you’re a student at one of the four major universities based in Cardiff. The nightlife is great and you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to sporting fixtures, the arts or other cultural experiences.
