A modern university with a strong focus on employability, community and student support
Cardiff Metropolitan University can trace its ancestry back to the opening of the Cardiff School of Art in 1865. The two campuses at Llandaff and Cyncoed are within easy reach of Cardiff’s vibrant city centre.
Cardiff Metropolitan University awarded Silver in the most recent Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF 2017) and the highly prestigious title of UK & Ireland University of the Year 2021 (The Times Higher Education, 2021). 96% of graduates in employment or further study within six months of graduating (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education, 2017). 85% of students agree or strongly agree that they are satisfied with the quality of their course (National Student Survey 2019).
It’s a close-knit community: students benefit from small class sizes and supportive tutors, and have the benefit of living in one of the UK’s most affordable cities.
There’s a strong focus on employability. The University pledges to give its graduates the Cardiff Met EDGE – ethical, digital, global and entrepreneurial skills to develop their confidence and resilience, preparing them for life after university. It maintains close links with the employers across the industry to carefully design courses that are industry-relevant and career focus, offering students great opportunities to gain work placements and internships.
The Global Engagement Graduate Skills Award is a package of expert support and opportunities to help international graduates make the most of their time studying, working and excelling in the UK, helping you to kickstart your global career.
The University offers a wide range of courses in Business & Management, Technologies, Arts & Design, Education and Social Policy, and Sports Health Sciences.
