Congratulations on being offered a place at Cardiff University.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to campus, and are working hard to ensure that you will be living and learning safely.

To help you settle in as quickly as possible, we are running a series of events in induction week which are all designed to prepare you for the coming academic year.
