Living in Cardiff

Living in Cardiff

The capital city of Wales, Cardiff is one of the UK’s most popular university cities, buzzing with youthful creative energy.

The city’s impressive range of arts, sporting and cultural venues are all within easy walking distance. The city produces an imaginative programme of events and festivals, and you will find all the eating, shopping and nightlife options you would expect in a thriving European capital.

With the creative sector booming in Wales, there are exciting opportunities for our students and graduates to gain experience and find employment. Cardiff is home to the national arts companies of Wales and to the BBC’s largest drama production centre outside London.

The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama plays a significant role within this wider cultural infrastructure. It is one of the city’s most popular venues, attracting 60,000 visitors a year to its own performances and events. It also performs a vital role in supporting the wider creative sector in Wales and beyond.
