One of our graduate research students.

Cardiff is internationally recognised as being among the very top tier of Britain's research-intensive universities and is a member of the Russell Group of leading universities.

Research is undertaken in all of our academic schools and the vast majority of the University's academic staff are working in areas which are acknowledged by independent assessors as undertaking work of national and international significance. Such research annually earns grants and investments totalling many tens of millions of pounds and attracts to Cardiff top researchers from around the world.
