Wales is a country of contrasts. It’s a land of legend — King Arthur is claimed as a native by the Welsh — but is also home to one of Europe’s newest capitals, Cardiff. While Wales is one of the modern Celtic nations, roughly one-third of its people speak Welsh, one of the oldest languages in Europe. You’ll find friendly people, expansive nature, and amazing history (including 400 – yes, 400! – castles). And Wales has adapted well to new technology. You may be surprised to learn that Cardiff is one of the leading bases for media production in Britain. “Dr. Who,” “Torchwood” and “Sherlock” are produced, and sometimes filmed, in Cardiff.
Get off the beaten track study abroad in Cardiff, the elegant and friendly capital city on the coast of Wales! With strong biosciences, chemistry and mathematics departments, Cardiff is the perfect place for pharmacy, health sciences or premedical majors to study abroad and get credit for classes like Human Neuroanatomy or Signalling in Endocrine Systems.
