Join us at our Open Day to find out more about postgraduate study at Cardiff University. At the Open Day, you’ll have the opportunity to explore our wide range of master’s programmes. You can browse the stands in the main exhibition and meet staff and current students from our Academic Schools who will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

You’ll also be able to find out more about funding, applying, accommodation, careers, student support and more.

We’ve teamed up with two travel companies – Transport for Wales and First Great Western – to offer discounted train travel to all of our open day attendees.

UCU industrial action

You may be aware that the UCU trade union, which represents staff in the higher education sector, is currently conducting industrial action at universities across the UK as part of a national dispute over pay, pensions and working conditions. The final day of strike action will coincide with the Postgraduate Open Day and there is the potential for some disruption.

However, we expect the impact on our Open Day to be minimal. We are not currently aware of any changes or cancellations to the published event programme. If changes or cancellations do occur, we will let you know as soon as possible to ensure minimum disruption to your day.
