What to expect at a webinar

Our free webinars are the perfect opportunity to get to know Cardiff University if you have missed an on-campus open day or have any further questions about studying with us.

We encourage you to submit any questions you have in advance using the registration form, and we will answer them live on the day. You will also have the opportunity to submit questions during the webinar.

You will be able to see and hear our staff and students, but they will not be able to see or hear you, so you don't need access to a web camera or microphone.
