“I chose Cardiff because the Welsh School of Pharmacy has an excellent reputation and is considered one of the best in the UK. The city is full of culture and has a great social scene - it has such an incredible atmosphere, especially when Wales are playing rugby and winning in the stadium! The best aspects of my University experience have been meeting new people and simply having the most fantastic time of my life. I honestly could not imagine myself anywhere but here, I love it!”
