Cardiff University has welcomed many Irish students over the years.

The close proximity of our two countries means Wales remains a popular choice.

From our shared love of rugby to an active Irish society, there are many ways to connect with new friends whilst also finding an established support network in place.

We are also easy to reach. Simply catch one of the many direct flights to Bristol Airport from Dublin, Cork or Knock and, from here, jump on one of the regular bus services that will take you to the heart of the Welsh capital where you will find a warm welcome awaits.

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.
