Between 6th-8th February 2017, 11 students from 8 countries across the world attended the annual Students’ Union partner event.
The students who attended study Cardiff Metropolitan University degrees at the following partner institutions:
- Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (Egypt)
- Gulf College (Oman)
- London School of Commerce (U.K)
- Modern University for Business and Science (Lebanon)
- Perrotis College (Greece)
- Superior Institutions for Science and Technology (Morocco)
- Universal Business School (India)

During their visit, students took part in Student Rep training, had tours of both the Llandaff and Cyncoed campus where they had the chance to meet other students and staff here at Cardiff Met. They also took part in a ‘Train the Trainer’ workshop was so they could take back the information they had learnt from their visit to then teach the students studying at their campus.
The students also had the chance to explore Cardiff with SU staff and Vice-President, Will Fuller. We were lucky enough to meet the Deputy Lord Mayor of Cardiff at the Lord Mayor’s Mansion House and enjoyed having a look around the Mansion and seeing where many famous figures, including Nelson Mandela had stayed before during their visits to Cardiff.
Miltiadis Roidis, a student from Perrotis College in Greece who attended the event said, “I definitely improved my skills as a Representative. I learned many interesting things that I didn’t know about Cardiff Met itself as well as several tools and services that will definitely change students’ studying experience.”
Students’ Union Vice-President, Will Fuller, said “The event was a fantastic opportunity for Cardiff Met student’s from around the globe to learn, share ideas and explore the city. It was an action packed few days and I hope all the students will return to their institutions and pass on their new knowledge and experiences of Cardiff Met and the city of Cardiff”.
