International students

We have a support system for international students which offers services to help our students thrive.

Moving to a new culture can be daunting, so we provide specialised support for our school's international students to help make your experience at Cardiff University a comfortable and fulfilling one.

These services include all you need to know about student life, from preparation to arrival, study, socialising, medical advice, careers and religious support.

We focus on your employability

Our international students come from diverse backgrounds. We are committed to preparing you to be able to work in any part of the world during your studies and after you graduate.

Our courses are focused on international employability, offering you opportunities to study abroad, and go on work placements either in the UK or internationally through our networks.

Additional career and employability support is provided by the school, as well as the university's Student Support Centre, which provides advice, workshops, events, work and experience placements.
