Visiting from abroad

The International Office team is currently working remotely, so we are unable to accommodate visits to Cardiff University. If you are planning to visit Cardiff, please email us at, and we will be happy to support you in planning your visit.

If you’re considering studying with us, then we recommend you make a visit to our campus and city.

Whether it’s the majestic surroundings, the warm and friendly atmosphere or the infectious city buzz, there's no better way to experience it.

Guided visits

Staff from our International Office will be happy to meet you and show you around the University campus for a general visit. We can also try to arrange a meeting with your intended Academic School if you wish.

We recommend that you come during the week and during term-time so that you can view the University and departments to their full extent. Campus tour times are between 9:00-15:30, Monday to Friday.

Please email us for a booking form so that we can look into arranging a visit to our campus. We can also try to arrange a meeting with your intended Academic School if you wish.

Self-guided tour

If you are unable to visit during the above times, then you are more than welcome to download and do a self-guided tour.

The tour will give instructions to direct you around campus and will include interesting facts about our facilities. The tour should take approximately one hour.
