We trace our history back to 1865, when the School of Art first opened in the Old Free Library in Cardiff. Since we developed into a university, we have remained rooted in Wales while providing practice-focused and professionally oriented education to students from around the globe.
With an increasing number of employers looking to employ graduates who have industry experience as well as academic achievement, work placements have an increasing importance in securing high quality employment. The successful completion of a work placement will allow a student to develop sector-specific skills as well as a detailed knowledge on an industry which will enable them to make informed choices regarding their future career path.
We offer free, impartial, non-judgemental and confidential counselling and advice on money, wellbeing, disability and dyslexia.
We currently have nearly 1,000 study bedrooms located at the Cyncoed and Plas Gwyn campuses and allocate a further 600 private en-suite halls of residence to students through nomination agreements.
Cardiff offers access to digital and physical collections including our own Special Collections. MetSearch offers access to 1000s of ebooks and ejournals 24/7 and 365 days a year
The library service has a team of dedicated Academic Librarians who can give you advice and support.
The Healthy University Strategy has evolved from the bottom up with commitment from all parts of the University, including the Students Union and is very much informed by the staff and student voice. The strategy largely developed out of a series of staff and student 'road shows' and other consultation opportunities which were held throughout 2015/16
Cardiff Met Sport, the Students' Union and the Cardiff School of Sport & Health Sciences work in partnership to support the student sport and recreation experience in the University.
