"Choosing a university is a really tough decision. The most important factors are course reputation, the city, facilities provided, access to halal food/meat (for the muslims) and support from the university staff. At Cardiff Metropolitan University [the facilities are] amazing, they even have a really good prayer room with a proper ablution area and also, they serve halal foods in the canteen at affordable prices!"
Mohammed Aziizan Abdullah - Cardiff Met Student from Brunei
