Why did you choose to study at Cardiff University?

I had heard a lot about Cardiff University particularly about its journalism courses from both ex-students and locals from the UK. My undergraduate degree was actually in the field of journalism and mass communication. However, as the previous course was very practical, I wanted to do something more academic.

What was the most relevant/beneficial aspect of the course?

The most unique feature about this course that helped enhance my skill was the extensive use of research analysis that I was asked to do. This aspect not only helped me grasp the various research techniques but also helped me understand the way media texts are used as research samples.

What did you enjoy most about the course/Cardiff University?

The practical research work given as part of the assignments was the best thing. Through this I not only got to work on popular issues covered by the media but also got to understand media working to a certain extent.

Why would you recommend Cardiff to potential students?

Cardiff University provides a lot of scope to students in terms of academics and research. Besides this, all the lecturers are learned scholars and their first hand experience with the media provides the students with an insight into different dimensions of journalism. In addition, each lecturer being open to new ideas and views further assists students to convert their potential concepts into doable projects. The competitive environment, interesting assignments and extensive library resources all together aim to provide the best learning experience for all the students.
