This is totally my subjective view. This University is going downhill since it changed its name to Cardiff Metropolitan, some lecturers don't seem to know what they are doing and it is hard to get any sense out of them. Feedback is slow and unconstructive as it is very basic. Some lecturers are very good but they are let down by the mediorce ones and the terrible ones, especially in the School of Management. The admin staff are miserable and always seem to be in a bad mood, the slightess request is met with negativity and the personal tutors only seem to want to help those who are at the lowest end and not the good students. We were told this year what to put on the NSS so I refused to complete it. Cardiff itself is a great place to live but I wish I had chosen to go elsewhere to do my degree as no-one ever seems to fail here. This may seem like a good idea but when you leave and you've worked hard for your degree you will be competing against those that did nothing and employers will laugh at you if you have a Cardiff Met degree.
