Teaching and student experience

Our students benefit from teaching and research that is driven by curiosity and creativity.

We work in partnership with our students to create a stimulating and supportive environment in which all our students can thrive.

Our teaching and learning is embedded within a vibrant and dynamic research setting in which our students work alongside international scholars at the forefront of their subject. Our academic staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic teachers, committed to developing effective and exciting learning communities.

Our programmes of study develop critical thinking skills and prepare students for bright and successful futures.

Quality assurance

The high quality of our teaching is endorsed by regular independent institutional quality reviews of our provision, by professional bodies, and by external examiners. Prospective and current students, parents, teachers and graduate employers can have confidence in the quality and standards of our awards and provision.

Student feedback

We provide a range of regular opportunities for students to comment on the quality of teaching and their student experience, including annually participating in the National Student Survey. Levels of student satisfaction are consistently high, the 2017 survey found that 84% of our students were satisfied with their overall experience of the University.

We listen to our students and use their suggestions to continuously improve the student experience at Cardiff University.
