“Studying at a top five research university will add value to graduates for life! I’m extremely proud to not only be the Students’ Union President here at Cardiff but to have studied at such an ambitious, innovative and forward-thinking institution.”

Professor Colin Riordan, Vice-chancellor of Cardiff University told WalesOnline: “That’s really going to make people sit up and take notice and I’m extremely proud.

“We were aiming for the top 10 but we got into the top five.

“To be right next to Cambridge is a fantastic achievement that we honestly wouldn’t have expected.”
