Cardiff University has a long tradition of welcoming international students. With over 3,500 international students currently studying at Cardiff, representing over 100 countries, the University has a multi-cultural environment. We also have facilities to match, which include a strong International Office that offers help with visas, enrolment, finding accommodation and other practical matters that will make your life easier from the moment you apply to Cardiff. The School of Psychology is internationally recognised in both research and teaching, and we have a correspondingly wide range of students and staff from all over of the world.

"I came from HELP University College Malaysia and transferred directly into my second year in Psychology. Studying in Cardiff is very enjoyable as it's a happening city, yet you can find peaceful getaways closeby. You get the best of both worlds here - you can study hard first, relax, and party hard after that. I'm proud to say I'm living life to the full here!"
