Graduates say...

...on the teaching:

“You get a good level of contact from the teachers.” 

“There's a lot of face-to-face teaching.” 

“The teaching was good, but the compulsory modules were more tailored to high-street firms than commercial firms.”

Chambers says...

We think this is a good-value course, but as Welsh trainee salaries are the lowest in the country, graduates looking to make top dollar may have to rejoin the City rat race. There's a slightly high-street slant to some of the course, but there's a good spread of electives in both commercial and private client subjects. It's the only red brick university to offer both the LPC and the BPTC, but graduates need not rely on this cachet alone, as Cardiff's impressive work experience programme is open to both courses.
