Students in the Science Library in Main Building

The city of Cardiff has been twinned with Nantes since 1964 and we have welcomed a great number of French students to Cardiff University over the years.

We have an active and vibrant French society who organise regular social events and are a great a source of support for French students in the University. Travelling between Cardiff is France is quick and easy with direct flights from Bordeaux, Marseille, Nantes, Nice, Paris and Toulouse.

Exhibitions and visits

Representatives from the University regularly attend events throughout the year, both in-person and virtual. To view opportunities to talk to us in you can browse our upcoming global events.

If you have any questions regarding our visits, please contact us.
