What's it like to live in Wales?
Check out our region guide
With lush rolling hills to explore by foot, bike or zipline, a proud sporting tradition, and a famously-benevolent population who like a good singsong, Wales may offer the most satisfying student experience in the UK.
The country has a little of everything: historic cities like Cardiff and Swansea, pretty coastal towns, and three national parks including Snowdonia – home to the highest mountain in Wales. If you’re the outdoorsy type, you’ll be right at home.
Studying here, you’re bound to hear a tale or a hundred involving dragons, knights, and castles, perhaps over some rarebit – a traditional dish that will put your average student’s cheese on toast to shame.
