On the day

Campus visits

Campus visits are your chance to get a real first-hand experience of the University of the city.

Our Campus Visits are designed for those applying for entry 2018, who didn’t make it to our Open Days but who are still eager to see what Cardiff University and the capital city have to offer. 85% of applicants* say that Open Days helped determine their university choices so make sure you don’t miss out on this last opportunity to help you choose the right place to study (*UCAS survey 2017).

You can book to attend one of our upcoming Campus Visits:

  • Saturday 25 November 9.30am – 12.30pm
  • Saturday 9 December 9.30am – 12.30pm

  • See the Students' Union, rated Top 4 in the UK
  • Attend our ‘Why Cardiff?’ talk to find out why we receive over 35,000 applications a year, along with information about our admissions process

  • Watch our student-led films (some of which are created by our own students) whilst munching on some complimentary popcorn!
