Review of "University of Wales Institute - Faculty of Art, Design & Technology"
University of Wales Institute Cardiff (UWIC) has been a university since 1998. It was formerly known as Cardiff Institute of Higher Education, Llandaff Technical College and years before that it was the college for Mariners.UWIC quickly gained an award for excellence.
UWIC has four sites across the city. Each campus has many different schools.Colchester Avenue- Catering and Hospitality.
Howard Gardens- Art.
Cyncoed- Teaching and Sport.
Llandaff- Sciences, IT, Business, Design Technology, Art, Horticulture.
There are about 10,000 students at UWIC across the four sites.UWIC has an active Students' Union which has its own bus service, bars and even has an interest in a night club in the city centre called Reds.
Although UWIC already has an adequate provision of halls, 2005 will see the opening of brand new student accomodation in the city centre.Computer facilities are 24/7 and there is never a shortage of PC's, which I understand can be a real problem at other universities in the UK.
Catering facilities at UWIC are excellent and reasonably priced.There is also a nursery at Llandaff campus where pre-school age children (even babies)can attend. The facilities there are second to none. I viewed some local private nurseries before sending my son to the UWIC nursery and none were as good as the UWIC nursery.
Staff are friendly and approachable. Teaching and learning facilities are A1.
