My name is Rachel, and I am a MSc Econ International Relations graduate.

I attended an Open Day in 2018, which gave me a really useful insight into life at Cardiff and what the University had to offer. The information I received on the course details and funding helped me make the decision that Cardiff was the right choice for my postgraduate degree.

” The Open Day is the perfect opportunity to find out all you can about your course, the campus, the people and the city. Here are my top tips on how to get the most out of the Open Day.”
