We are celebrating

We have just been awarded Welsh University of the Year 2021 by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide.  Our performance in this year’s Guide is exceptional – our University was the biggest riser in Wales, and the third biggest in the UK, placing us in the UK top 40 for student satisfaction with teaching quality and the wider student experience. Our University also achieved its highest ever rise in this year’s Guardian University Guide, having climbed 41 places, which was the highest rise in Wales. 


We are pleased that these strong performances have resulted in the University being successful in attracting high numbers of well qualified students and we are now seeking additional high calibre staff, in both our academic schools and professional services departments, to enable us to continue providing the best learning and teaching experience for our students as we move forward in the 2020/21 academic year and beyond.    


About Us
Cardiff Metropolitan University is one of the UK’s most progressive new universities, with around 10,000 students across our two campuses in Cardiff.  


We consistently rank in the top ten per cent of UK universities for graduate start-ups per student, and this spirit of innovation and enterprise lies at the heart of the University. Programmes and research are undertaken across five key Schools:  Art and Design; Education and Social Policy; Sport and Health Sciences; Management; and Technologies.


The University is part way through an ambitious strategic plan to 2023 that will see it concentrating on enhanced student outcomes with growth in international activities, disciplinary breadth and overall scale. The University prides itself on the role that translational research plays in enhancing the student experience and we are committed to providing our students with an outstanding student experience. We work in partnership with students to instil the Cardiff Met EDGE - a series of Ethical, Digital, Global and Entrepreneurial skills to develop confidence, resilience and experiences that will prepare them for life after university and through to employment.
