Cathays Park Campus guided tours

Bookings are now open for enhanced tours of our Cathays Park Campus in February 2024.

What to expect

Our enhanced tours are intended for those who may have missed our Open Days. It's not the full Open Day experience, but you will have the opportunity explore our Cathays Park Campus and to ask all the questions you have about what life is like at Cardiff University.

The enhanced tours sessions include:

  • a presentation on life at Cardiff University
  • a Q&A session with current students
  • a 45-minute walking tour around Cathays Park Campus with a student guide

Additional academic schools

The Schools of Engineering, Physics and Astronomy, Optometry and Vision Sciences and the School of Journalism, Media and Culture are not included in the campus tour. If you would like to arrange an add-on tour to one of these schools (approximately one hour extra), please email us at once you have booked your campus tour session.

We are unable to conduct tours of our Heath Park Campus, where the Schools of Dentistry, Medicine and Healthcare Sciences are based. Students studying Dentistry (BDS), Medicine and Medical Pharmacology all spend some time on our Cathays Park Campus in their first year.

Book your place

We would advise you to book your place as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment.

To give as many prospective students as possible the opportunity to view our campus, a maximum of two guests per booking will be able join the tour. If you plan on bringing anyone with you, make sure to add the correct number of guests on your booking form.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
