Research Spotlight

Cardiff is one of Britain's major research-intensive universities.

Teaching at Cardiff University takes place in a research environment where students benefit from interaction with researchers who are working at the frontiers of knowledge in their respective disciplines.

Research conducted at the University is vigorous and pioneering, creating a stimulating environment at the increasingly wide interface with business.

Cardiff University research has had an enormous impact in Wales, the UK and internationally: by generating significant financial returns for our partners and establishing new commercial entities; and by positively impacting on peoples quality of life, health and environment.

Research is undertaken in all the Schools of the University, including much ground breaking interdisciplinary research.  Projects are carried out with a wide range of partners from local businesses to multi-national corporations; government and numerous other bodies world-wide.

Cardiff's status as one of Britain's leading research intensive universities is evidenced by the positive outcome of the most recent Government-sponsored Research Assessment Exercise and its membership of the Russell Group.
