My elder brother was studying in this college, so, I also insisted on my parents to send me abroad to study. So they decided to get me admitted to this university because my brother is here to help me out. I applied for the admission through the online portal (UCAS) and was asked to pay around £20 as the application fee.
In this course, we developed transferable technical, analytical, and professional skills, supported by a broad awareness of current technology trends, particularly in the field of computer security. The course covers a mixture of core techniques and concepts and evolving, technology-based subject matter.
Because it was a Russel group uni and research is important/ what I want to do, it also specializes in semiconductors which I wanted to do and it was the best I got an offer for based on my predicted A-level grades.
It's broad which I like and I have some choices when it comes to modules but it teaches a lot of stuff that most of the year is unlikely to ever practically use or need which can be annoying at times when you need to learn the material to pass a test or do well on coursework.
I loved the city and the course structure. Cardiff uses a CBL method of teaching, meaning Case Based Learning. This is different from every other medical school and involves group work with additional support from facilitators.
Course Curriculum is rigorous.
It is a Russel group university and I am interested in semiconductors which it specializes in as there are a large group and a lot of funding going into this and it was far from where I was living which was a benefit for me.
I like the diversity available to me in studying modules, but it would be nice to have a greater percentage of my mark awarded for coursework instead of the exam as this is currently twenty percent to eighty percent.
I love the city! It is quite near my home but far enough away that it feels away but still, I can be home if I need to! I also think the course is really good here for what I wanted to do (eg a year in the industry that counts towards a degree).
It's good but not enough maths. I think that the chemistry would appear to be a lot easier if the maths was necessary and also taught more at the degree level.
