UWIC has been ranked Wales’s leading new university three years in a row

Cardiff is more than an affordable, student-friendly city. It is home to the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (UWIC) which was ranked the top new university in the UK in 2004* and has been independently acclaimed as the leading new university in Wales for the last three years.

UWIC also rates well in terms of graduates’ career prospects. Graduate employment statistics show 95 per cent of UWIC students have found employment or have enrolled for higher-level courses within three months of completing their studies. This reflects the close links that UWIC has with industry and employers and makes UWIC one of the premier universities in the UK in terms of career prospects.

These ties with industry and employers are reflected in the courses which are career-based and have a practical emphasis. Courses are offered full-time and part-time at levels from higher national certificates and diplomas, through to bachelor degrees, masters and PhD. Subject areas cover everything from accountancy and biomedical sciences to wine studies and waste management. The UWIC also offers a professional doctorate — a qualification that includes taught, experiential and research elements and results in an original contribution to learning or to the workplace. All UWIC degrees are validated by the University of Wales so they have an independent seal of approval.

UIWC has around 9000 students from all parts of the UK and from across the world. Forty different countries are represented within the student body and the International Student Welfare Office is well equipped to provide counselling, assistance with accommodation problems and advice on general issues ranging from immigration to finance. A full social program is organised for international students: It includes trips to places like London, Bath and Paris, and regular international student social evenings. Further offerings for international students include an induction program, free English language and study skills support and accommodation options.

Indian MBA student Ankur Sharma said the UWIC staff and students were really helpful. "You get to meet other students of so many different nationalities and there is so much to do and see that you just don't miss home at all," Ankur said.

Wales is a country with a great deal of history and has more castles per square mile than any other country in Western Europe. Wales also has many areas of outstanding natural beauty with spectacular coastlines and rugged mountains. Located only two hours from London, Cardiff is an excellent base from which to travel with road, rail and air links to the UK and Europe.
