Study Abroad

Students with Welsh flag

Study abroad for one or two semesters in the capital city of Wales, which offers a truly unique experience for students from outside the EU.

Why Cardiff?

By choosing to come and study with us, you will benefit from a great educational experience at a top-ranked University in the heart of a UK capital city.

Studying & support

As a study abroad student, you will be fully integrated into our community and take your modules 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.


We know that where you live is very important to you. So we will help you settle and find secure, well-located accommodation that is suitable for your studies with us.

Arrival and orientation

Once you have arrived in Cardiff there will be a comprehensive orientation programme to help you settle in.
