Cardiff University established in 1883 as University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire, is recognised in independent government assessments as one of Britain's leading teaching and research universities. Today, Cardiff University is home to more than 28,000 students and 6,000 staff in highly advanced, well-equipped buildings, forming an elegant part of the city’s striking civic centre.
Cardiff is a member of the Russell Group of Britain's leading research universities. The University gives a high priority to the provision of a stimulating environment for the support and promotion of teaching and learning. Teaching and learning at Cardiff develops the intellectual skills and self-reliance that equips their students to deal with complexity and uncertainty and to question and analyse existing orthodoxies.
Cardiff University aims to be one of the 21st Century’s leading international universities. Campus Horizons, a program of ambitious capital projects, is one step towards that aim. The program includes major new development projects, including an entirely new campus for the University’s research. The existing campus will be upgraded and transformed, as will the information and communications technology.
