The University is one of the UK’s most popular and is an internationally recognised centre for teaching and research. Founded in 1883, it is based in the very centre of Cardiff, the capital of Wales.

Studying and support

As a study abroad student at Cardiff University, you'll be fully integrated into the student body and take your courses alongside UK and international students pursuing their degrees.

Choosing your programme

Our academic system is modular, which means you can choose classes from several different subjects.

How to apply

You can apply to study abroad for the whole academic year or a semester.

Visa information

If you are coming to the UK to study, you will need a visa. The visa you need depends on several factors including the length of your stay and what you wish to do when you are here.

Fees and living costs

Cardiff is one of the more affordable of the traditional university cities, so you'll have more to spend exploring the UK and Europe.


Find out about the University residences, including cost and how to reserve your room.

Arrival and orientation

At the start of each semester the International Office provides an induction programme to new international students.
