Pre-departure briefing 2016

Calling all Cardiff University offer-holders in Malaysia!

Congratulations on receiving an offer to study at Cardiff this September! We’re looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the beautiful capital city of Wales.

To help with your preparations for coming to Cardiff, Katie Jones from the International Office will be holding our Malaysia pre-departure briefing sessions at two locations in July. These will be:

Johor Bahru on Saturday 23 July 2016
Kuala Lumpur on Sunday 24 July 2016

The aim of the briefing is to:

  • ensure that you have all the information you need about life and study at Cardiff
  • advise you on what you need to do to prepare for your trip
  • enable you to meet other students who will be coming to Cardiff this year
  • allow you to ask any questions you might have to a Cardiff University representative
  • to introduce you to members of the Malaysian Student Society of Cardiff University

The Malaysian Student Society is one of the largest at Cardiff University with more than 200 members. Its mission is to support and represent Malaysian students at Cardiff, as well as to coordinate events which bring students together.

As part of the Kuala Lumpur pre-departure briefing, the Society will run a separate breakout session for offer-holders only, giving you a fantastic opportunity to engage with other students and build up a network of friends before coming to Cardiff in September.

A representative from the Society will also attend the event in Johor Bahru, to answer your questions and to provide an overview of the Society’s work over the past year. Please note: there will not be a separate breakout session at the event in Johor.
