Supporting your postgraduate study

Male PG student in the library

As a postgraduate student, in addition to the range of facilities and support services that we provide to all our students, you can benefit from services tailored to your level of study.


We offer social and study facilities to both taught and research postgraduate students, while the Students’ Union is committed to maintaining a dedicated programme of social events for postgraduate students.

Personal tutors

At the beginning of your programme, you'll be assigned a personal tutor, who will meet with you at least once a semester. They'll be able to offer guidance and support, while maintaining an overview of your study.

Pastoral and academic support at Cardiff is fantastic. Support ranges from well-being or counselling to academic essay-writing workshops to make improvements to your work. The services provided, by both the Students' Union and my academic school, have meant that any problems have been picked up on and dealt with before they became an issue.
