Our global community, reputation and partnerships are at the heart of our identity.
Our ambition is to form tightly knit collaborations with international universities in order to promote research, share best practice in teaching and management, and establish our position as a global university.
Our collaborative work with academic partners across the world produces research with real impact. From collaborating with researchers in China in order to tackle cancer, to studying the genetics and demographics of mammals in our research centre in Borneo, we're working to tackle global challenges.
We also attract the highest calibre of academics and researchers from around the world, further enhancing the learning experience for students and bringing a wider perspective to our research.
We have formal links with more than 50 countries including:
- 38 partnerships across China
- 11 in Malaysia
- 23 in the US (with over 550 informal links)
Santander Universities have donated £225,000 since 2011, which has been used to fund awards for outstanding projects and students, and help our entrepreneurs. Their funding gives our students the possibility to travel abroad to continue their studies.
The Fulbright Commission gives two annual awards, allowing US citizens to come here and teach, lecture, conduct research, or pursue a Master's degree programme.
Together with Bangor University and Aberystwyth University, we host the Fulbright Wales Summer Institute, a six week cultural and academic programme for US students, focusing on the theme of Contemporary Wales: Industry, Politics, Culture and Change.
Marshall Scholarships finance young, highly-able Americans, allowing them to study for a Master's degree or a research degree here.
A growing number of our students choose to undertake a placement abroad to study, work or volunteer as part of their Cardiff experience. This helps them build cultural awareness and enhance their employability.
We also welcome hundreds of students from continental Europe and further afield on exchange programmes.
