Cardiff University participates in a range of internationally recognised scholarship schemes to attract the very best postgraduate students from across the globe. In recent years, we have welcomed scholars through Chevening Scholarships, Santander Scholarships, Fulbright Scholarships, and the Commonwealth Scholarship Programme. In addition to this, Cardiff University offers its own lucrative scheme, the Vice-Chancellor’s International Scholarship. In 2017, £2m worth of funding was made available to international students across a range of disciplines at all study levels.

There is a dedicated Doctoral Academy providing support and facilities for postgraduates. The Students’ Union also offers a dedicated programme of events to bring together the postgraduate community throughout the year. There are also exclusive social spaces and study areas for postgraduate students located on campus.

International postgraduate students are guaranteed a single occupancy place in Cardiff University accommodation if their course begins in September. Unusually, most of the University’s student accommodation is within easy walking distance of lecture theatres, libraries and the Students’ Union, saving students time and money. There is a wide range of accommodation available for postgraduate students, such as quiet living spaces, women’s only accommodation, and family flats.
