Satisfied with Cardiff Metropolitan University.
Tips: I think students will not face any cultural shift and discrimination. Personally, I didn't experience much difference in cultural things and food varieties as well. I haven't got any scholarship over here but students can apply. I am very satisfied with my university and with the faculty members as well. They are highly qualified and kind.
Dislikes (Public transportation): I myself live near the campus, so for me, it's not so far to travel to the university. But the campus is very beautiful and cheerful. Public transportation is also very good and not so expensive. In fact, the campus is very well connected to the rest part of the main city. It's so big and beautiful.

It has been a great journey so far and I will recommend it to everyone.
Tips: It is the best university in the budget. Everything is on track, the staff is very supportive. It depends on the course though. This university is very good for technical courses like Engineering etc so yeah if you want that then come. Apart from that business courses are really good as well.
Likes (Indian Food): I prefer cooking myself but there are lots of food options available, but i will suggest eating at home as the food outside costs a lot of money. So come prepared from home and learn some dishes from youtube and your family as well. Eat clean and healthy.
Dislikes (Public transportation): There is guidance available. The career team is really good and you can book 1 on 1 sessions with the career team as well. But you need to be talented and have good command on the language and actively look for jobs and work hard. If you are in the UK for labour work then that is a different issue you can go to any random university then.

Cardiff student life is best you will get lots of discounts as a student, even vouchers to spend and save money. You will find beaches to enjoy one of them is Barry Island and the other is Cardiff bay.
