Our students benefit from teaching that builds both intellectual skills and the ability to think independently.
Learning in a research-led environment means students interact with researchers working at the frontiers of knowledge in their disciplines. Our research is vigorous and pioneering - this creates a stimulating environment for study.
The 2016 National Student Survey found that 87% of our students were satisfied with their student experience.
Our graduates are among the most sought-after by employers, 94.1% find employment or further study within six months of graduating.*
Some of our degree courses include a professional training year, whilst others provide accreditation from professional bodies. All undergraduate and postgraduates can learn a choice of languages for free.
We are the largest provider of adult education in Wales, with the Cardiff Centre for Lifelong Learning providing several hundred courses in venues across South East Wales. We also offer professional development programmes, including custom-made courses.
Enhancing the student learning experience
Our Centre for Education Innovation (CEI) works closely with University staff to ensure they're provided with the support they need to innovate and develop their learning and teaching expertise.
The centre also manages The Learning Hub, which showcases and shares outstanding educational activity from across the University.
