Before making the decision about whether to bring your family to Cardiff, you will need to consider whether the immigration rules allow them into the UK, your financial position and whether your partner and children will adapt to life in the UK.
UK immigration authorities only allow your dependants to obtain visas to come to the UK. This is your partner/husband/wife and any dependant children you may have.

UKCISA have created a tool to help you find out if your family can come and stay with you in the UK, see:www.ukcisa.org.uk/student/t4_family/index.php
