I chose to study at Cardiff University because of its reputation. I plan to study Public Relations and Cardiff University is ranked highest in the UK for this course. I am doing the Bridge programme to improve my academic English skills before I start my postgraduate course.

I really enjoy the course. I have good classmates and they come from many countries, so it is very diverse. My speaking and listening have improved a lot since I started this course. The teachers encourage us to give our opinions and it is interesting to hear what different people think. I am less reserved about speaking now.

I bought a bicycle and I have been exploring the cycle routes around Cardiff, including the Taff Trail, which follows the river Taff up to a castle above Cardiff. It is a beautiful city. I’ve also been spending time with British students who are studying Japanese at Cardiff University, and playing football.

I would strongly recommend the Bridge programme at Cardiff University to others. It improves your IELTS score, but it also lets you experience life as a student in a British University. We are full students of the university, so we stay in university accommodation and we can use the libraries and all the university facilities that students on degree programmes have access to.
