Parents & teachers

Teachers & careers advisers

Cardiff University has an extensive outreach programme that encourages students of various age groups to aspire to and prepare for higher education.

Schools and Colleges Liaison Service

Our Schools and Colleges Liaison Team work with over 240 schools and colleges each year to deliver information sessions for year 12 and year 13 students.

Widening Access

We run a range of programmes and activities to raise aspirations and promote higher education to traditionally under-represented groups in Wales. These are offered to students in years 11 to 13.

Higher Education Roadshow

We work in partnership with Cardiff Metropolitan University (formerly UWIC) to raise awareness and promote the benefits of higher education through HE Roadshow assemblies which are delivered to year 10 and 11 students in Welsh schools.

Teachers’ and careers advisers' conferences

Cardiff University holds an annual conference for Teachers and Advisers to showcase the University’s newest facilities and provide information about changes in higher education and the application process. Our last conference was held on July 2014 - click on the heading above to view the programme.
