High levels of Student Satisfaction

86% of students at Cardiff Met agree or strongly agree that overall, they are satisfied with the quality of their course.  National Student Survey 2019.


Our focus on employability has ensured that 96%* of our graduates secure employment or enter further study within six months of graduating, while our entrepreneurship team helps students and graduates realise their business ambitions. (*DHLE 2017)


We compete at the highest level in the British Universities & College Sport (BUCS) leagues, regularly winning championships across a wide range of sports.  Our students represent the University at national and international level building on our well established sporting pedigree with a multitude of Welsh, British, Commonwealth, European, World, Olympic and Paralympic athletes who have graduated through our institution.



Cardiff Met’s location is an advantage. This is not just one of the best cities in the UK to live and work in, it’s also one of the most creative. There are plenty of opportunities for students to gain valuable work experience in design related roles, and the Graphic Communication course promotes these opportunities to all their students.
