    Hi, I'm Reese from Cardiff University. What's the weather like in the UK? Well, the UK has four very distinct seasons, sometimes coming all in one day. So perhaps one answer to the question is that UK weather is pretty changeable. But please don't believe the hype. It's not just rain, rain, rain. We also have glorious sunshine from time to time. So of course do pack an umbrella. But don't forget your shades. Whatever the weather, I am sure that studying in the UK and studying at Cardiff University will be an experience that will serve you extremely well.

On average, the temperatures in windows may fluctuate between 27 degrees Celsius and go up to 30 degrees during a heat wave. An umbrella, however, is a must as one can experience drizzling rain and radiance and light in a single afternoon.

    Hello, Carys from Cardiff Met. We get a real mix of weather in the UK, one minute it can be raining, the next the sun is out. Generally our summers are quite warm around 20 to 30 degrees when everyone is down the beach in their shorts and t-shirts. And then in the winter time, temperatures can reach around zero degrees. So quite cold, but perfect for cozy nights in log fires and pajama parties.

    I'm Vic and international officer from Leeds University. The weather in the UK can be a little unpredictable. We have a bit of a joke that you can have all four seasons in one day. So it's not unusual to carry sunglasses and an umbrella. And I would definitely recommend layering clothes. It does get quite cold in the winter, but we have some beautiful long days in the summer.
