Why Choose Cardiff?

Why should you choose Cardiff for Continuing Professional Development?

As a truly international, world-leading University, Cardiff has the capacity and capability to offer excellent teaching, outstanding research and close links with employers and professional bodies.

Designed for all organisations and covering a range of subject areas, the short professional development courses we offer are designed to raise skill levels and equip delegates with the latest information and techniques.

High quality

Every course is individually monitored and evaluated to ensure that we are consistently delivering the high quality you would expect from a world-leading institution.

Practical and up to date

We are constantly updating our course content and developing new programmes to reflect business needs and the latest industry developments. Courses are highly participative, with a particular emphasis on discussion and interaction.


We know that it can be difficult to balance development needs with work requirements and other commitments. That’s why our courses are flexible, with multiple start dates throughout the year and on-line booking available.

Relevant to the workplace

All of our trainers have first hand experience in the workplace, and so are able to translate knowledge and theory into practical examples which are relevant to your organisation.

Excellent facilities

The majority of courses are run within Continuing & Professional Education, which provides excellent teaching facilities including newly refurbished, air-conditioned training rooms, a state-of-the-art computer suite and language training laboratory.

Convenient location

Continuing & Professional Education is part of the main University campus, which is conveniently located in and around Cardiff’s magnificent civic centre, near to all the main city centre railway stations and car parks.

Bespoke courses

All of our courses can be offered as bespoke courses or tailored to your specifications using components of different courses or other expertise within Cardiff University. Once the training requirements have been established we can propose a course that will provide flexibility in terms of duration, size of group, design and delivery.


Helping you make the right choice…

We aim to make the course outlines as informative as possible, however we know that it often helps to talk to someone who can answer your questions and help you make an informed choice.
