We are very proud of our student community and are committed to helping you enjoy your time in Cardiff.
Our student-staff panel is a great opportunity for our students to play an active role in the life of the School. New academic reps are elected each year.
This student-run society does a great job of bringing students from all across the School of Social Sciences together for social events, bake sales, and the annual SOCSI Ball. The Society also runs the busy and successful SOCSI netball and football teams. They place a particular focus on welcoming new students and helping them make the most of their time in Cardiff.
Cardiff Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (CUROP)
CUROP provides summer placement opportunities that allow undergraduates to gain research experience and contribute to exciting research projects. Previous CUROP placements have included opportunities to work on projects exploring public health approaches to preventing sexual abuse, understanding how young people use schools as sites for self-harm, analysing how children understand and experience rural faith schooling, and the public engagement of under 25 year olds in urban governance.
Global Opportunities have links to over 300 institutions around the world, supporting students who are considering, or currently spending, a period of time abroad on a study or work placement, or who are interested in taking part in a short-term programme including study, work and volunteering opportunities.
