​A great capital city​

Cardiff is hugely geared up for catering for its many students and ensuring they love the capital city as much as its locals do.

Discover what Student Life is like!

Cardiff is a fantastic capital with so many plus points – including how close suburbs, visitor attractions,

​Cardiff Bay, the Vale coast and seaside and nightlife venues are to one another – and how easy it is to get around. ​Cardiff Bus routes mean you can take in all of these in a single day – or work your way around at a more leisurely pace during your time here. Your Met Rider pass opens up all these routes to you.

Parking in Cardiff can sometimes be tricky, meaning the Rider is a great way to get directly from halls to campus and students residential areas as well as around town for shopping or a night out.​
