FIELD

CONSTELLATION

Your undergraduate degree is built upon three types of core modules Subject, Field & Constellation.

The field modules are designed to make you look up and around you, experience different ideas in collaboration with students from other courses, noticing differences and similarities and widening your viewpoint. There will be choices for you to make and new experiences to try. You can start to think about the kind of artist or designer you want to be, try out a business idea, work alongside a research project or take a study trip abroad.

These modules introduce you to the wider world of ideas, theory and contextual studies. You will learn how art and design contributes to and is influenced by a network of contemporary and historical social, cultural and philosophical settings. You can choose to study a subject in further depth and produce a range of written/practical work in response. Typically students will produce a dissertation, a business plan or a combination of theory and practice.

SUBJECT This is your specialism, where you belong, the home during your time at university. You’ll focus on subject modules that will immerse you in the concepts and practices of your chosen degree. You will be creatively and academically challenged, whilst building on your existing skills by taking part in workshops, tutorials and studio practice projects.

Podiatry BSc (Hons) COURSE OVERVIEW Professionally approved by the Health and Care Professions Council, the course offers integrated theoretical and clinical studies, which is dependant on the completion of 1,000 clinical hours across the programme. This requirement enables you to demonstrate that you have met the Standards of Proficiency necessary for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) – the UK regulator for the Health Professions. The programme uses a case-led curriculum and embeds technology and constructionism into applied learning. This ensures that theory is always integrated with practice.

Podiatric Medicine 3 Musculoskeletal Studies 3 Professional Development 3 Research and Governance 3 Clinical Practice 3

EMPLOYABILITY & CAREERS The practice of podiatry is delivered both within the NHS and in the independent sector and a significant number of practitioners are either fully or partly engaged within Private Practice. The programme therefore aims to expose students to both areas of practice within their clinical learning experiences. Private practitioners, NHS staff and podiatry academic staff all work within the clinical environment with students. In addition the Centre hosts NHS clinics in which NHS patients are treated by podiatry students under the supervision of NHS podiatrists. You will also visit clinics within the NHS and the independent sector thus providing the best opportunity to integrate theory with practice and come into contact with an extensive range of patients. As such, graduates are able to gain work in the public (NHS) and private sector (practice, industry, commerce). Currently newly qualified podiatrists have ample opportunities to gain employment with little or no delay following graduation.

Tuition Fees for 2017 entry are fully paid by an NHS bursary. Information relating to 2018 entry and full details about NHS bursaries and allocation can be found at www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/nhsbursaries

Public Health BSc (Hons) COURSE OVERVIEW

YEAR ONE

EMPLOYABILITY & CAREERS

Public Health is about helping people to stay healthy and protecting them from threats to their health. There are three main areas of Public Health work:

In your first year of studies, you’ll get a solid grounding in key principles of public health and the range of factors that influence people’s health and wellbeing, as well as developing your critical thinking and academic research skills.

This programme has been designed to enable graduates to demonstrate the source of their public health knowledge and skills, a crucial aspect of achieving registration as a Public Health Practitioner. Your work-based learning experiences will enable you to take the first steps towards becoming a Registered Public Health Practitioner – applying your knowledge, developing your skills, and gaining experience of professional public health practice.

Health Protection - protecting people's health from environmental or biological threats, such as food poisoning or radiation, or by tackling the health effects of climate change in the UK or overseas. Health improvement - improving people's health, for example by helping people quit smoking, or improving their living conditions. Healthcare Public Health - ensuring that our health and care services are the most effective, most efficient and equally accessible This degree will provide you with the essential knowledge and skills you need to be an effective public health practitioner and offer a wide variety of career roles in the UK or around the world. When you graduate you’ll be able to identify and assess the health of individuals, groups and communities, and identify particularly vulnerable groups. Working with people from across a range of organisations and professional backgrounds, you’ll design, plan and apply interventions to promote and protect people’s health. During the course you will undertake at least four weeks equivalent of work-based learning, assessed and evaluated as part of your degree. We’ll help you find a suitable opportunity and liaise with the provider of the opportunity to ensure that you can get the most from your experiences. There are also opportunities to study, work or volunteer overseas.

YEAR TWO During the second year, you’ll be developing core public health knowledge and skills in areas such as epidemiology, health promotion, and health protection, and further developing your communication and teamwork skills. You'll also be planning and preparing for your work-based learning experience. YEAR THREE In your final year you’ll be learning how to effectively influence policy decisions to enhance public health, and how to work in partnership with communities and professionals to develop and apply effective public health interventions. You’ll also undertake a research project and build on your work-based learning experience to develop your individual career plan in public health. A full module list can be found on our website.

Graduate roles in Public Health may include a wide range of potential roles in public health practice with a local authority, Health Board or national agency (e.g. Public Health Wales or Public Health England). Examples of potential job titles include: Public Health Practitioner; Health Improvement Practitioner; Public Health Information Analyst; Smoking Cessation Co-ordinator; Community Engagement Officer; Health Protection Practitioner. Alternatively, you could pursue a career in public health overseas, working with international organisations and aid agencies, such as UNICEF or the International Red Cross.

Social Work BSc (Hons) COURSE OVERVIEW

YEAR TWO AND THREE

EMPLOYABILITY & CAREERS

The course is based on the National Occupational Standards for social work practice and is a partnership with local social work agencies and service user groups. It combines and integrates professional training in social work with academic study to degree level.

You will spend 180 days in assessed practice learning settings (80 days year two and 100 days year three).

Graduates will be able to access a wide range of employment opportunities within social work in statutory, voluntary and independent sector employment. Graduates are able to work with a range of services users and address complex social issues.

Social Work involves a flexible approach to meeting the needs of individuals, groups or communities. The programme is concerned with developing a range of competencies to meet the National Occupational Standard for Social Work. Current legislation, theory and research-based evidence in relation to social work knowledge, skills and values are related to direct practice experience and settings. This will include an understanding of the legislative provision of services and the importance of understanding social work within a Welsh context. The Care Council for Wales Code of Practice, equality and human rights issues will be integral to learning and practice. You will be expected to comply with the Code of Practice of the Care Council for Wales. YEAR ONE

This will involve a minimum of two practice settings that will provide you with a range of learning opportunities to demonstrate competence in relation to National Occupational Standards for Social Work and the Care Council for Wales' Code of Practice. There will be a focus on disadvantage, oppression and deprivation; leading to an emphasis on social work intervention and the contexts within which social work is practised.

Graduates will also be required to pursue Continued Professional Education and Learning within their Social Work careers, or a postgraduate qualification, for example in teaching in further/higher education or a Master’s or Doctorate in Social Work. Please note this course is also offered at Bridgend College.

In year two there will be a focus upon the application of social work knowledge, skills and values including research findings in their practice and academically assessed work, with an emphasis upon students demonstrating their development of critical, analytical and reflective practice. Year three subsequently offers the opportunity for students to build on the knowledge, skills and values attained in year two, with students demonstrating professional judgement, intervention and critical reflection across both their practice and within academically assessed work.

Before undertaking direct practice with service users in a practice learning setting, you must undertake 20 days of assessed practice learning through which you must demonstrate that you have the interpersonal skills and values required to be suitable and safe to work with individuals that receive social work/social care services. Study will focus on core values and skills as well as broader social, cultural and institutional processes that frame the role and task of social work.

Speech and Language Therapy BSc (Hons) COURSE OVERVIEW Please note this course is currently undergoing re-development and will re-commence in September 2018. In response to developments in higher education and the NHS, and in line with most other undergraduate courses in the UK, the BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Therapy degree at Cardiff Met is being redesigned as a three-year course, instead of the current four-year course. In order to manage the changeover to the new course, it will be necessary for there to be a year in which no students are admitted. Therefore there will be no intake to the course in September 2017. Students will be admitted onto the course again in September 2018.

EMPLOYABILITY & CAREERS The redesign of the course will help to enhance clinical education, by making it possible for students to undertake more block placements than they do at present. In addition to the immersion of students in the clinical environment, and their integration into the SLT teams that provide the placements, students will be able to obtain clinical experience in a wider range of locations and clinical settings across Wales than is currently possible. Specific enquiries about the programme can be directed to Dr Calum Delaney: cdelaney@cardiffmet.ac.uk information on the new course is likely to be made available in May 2017.

Graduates from the programme will be qualified to practise as speech and language therapists (subject to registration with the Health and Care Professions Council after graduation). The course has a good reputation throughout the UK and our graduates have been successful in obtaining employment. There is a demand for speech and language therapists both in the NHS and in the Education Service. Opportunities exist for speech and language therapists in hospitals, health centres, schools and specialist units. Graduates may also choose to progress to postgraduate study and/or research in the department. Some clinicians are employed by charitable organisations or undertake private practice. There are also opportunities to work abroad.

It is anticipated that this change will be beneficial in a number of ways. It will make it easier for the NHS Speech and Language Therapy Service in Wales to plan its workforce, and it will allow the course to respond more quickly to the changing needs of the people of Wales. It will also enable students to enter work sooner.

STUDENTPROFILE

“The International Office team was supportive right from the application stage, and their advice gave me the confidence to understand the visa process. I had so many questions - this was my first time traveling alone internationally. I worried about how much cash I should take with me, how I would get from London to Cardiff, what the accommodation would be like… so many practical things. The University took some of these worries away by providing a free pick-up service from London’s Heathrow Airport to Cardiff, and student ambassadors (who’ve been very helpful ever since) were waiting to greet us at the airport.” Manasi Parad, India

PERSONAL STATEMENTS

CLEARING

This is a very important part of your UCAS application; it’s your chance to tell us what excites and motivates you, what your ambitions are, your transferable skills, about research you’ve done and your experiences. Make sure it’s your personal statement but ask a teacher, friend or parent to proof read it; there’s nothing worse than seeing spelling mistakes.

If for whatever reason you have declined all your offers, or did not gain a place at your chosen university, you may be eligible for Clearing. Courses with vacancies will be advertised on UCAS from July and on our website from August.

Visit: www.ucas.com/personalstatement for more information.

HOW AND WHEN YOU WILL HEAR ABOUT THE STATUS OF YOUR APPLICATION You can view the status of your application online at any time by visiting UCAS Track at www.ucas.com/track. However, we will also be in touch via email and letter throughout every step of the application cycle - from the moment you apply, through to when a decision is made. Helpful advice and reminders will be sent right up until you start the course in September.

OPEN DAYS Admissions will be on hand at our Open Days to answer any questions you may have regarding your application. Visit: www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/opendays and book your place today.

APPLICANT DAYS Various programmes will hold course specific applicant days. You will be emailed with further details if this applies to the programme you have applied for.

If you would like someone to talk you through your options, please call our Clearing advice line on 0300 330 0755 or email askadmissions@cardiffmet.ac.uk from July onwards.

FEES AND ADDITIONAL COSTS Please ensure you are aware of the tuition fees for your course as well as any additional costs associated. Further information is available at: www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/fees.

OUR ADMISSIONS POLICY Cardiff Metropolitan University's admissions policy seeks to accept anyone who would benefit from higher education. Applications are considered on their individual merits, and will take into account a wide range of formal qualifications (please see Entry Requirements on the next page), as well as any relevant work experience.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF YOUR OFFER A binding contract is formed between the University and the applicant when the applicant accepts the offer of a place. Prior to accepting your offer, you should familiarise yourself with Cardiff Met’s Terms and Conditions, as well as your Programme Specification which will be emailed to you. Your place with the University will be subject to you fulfilling the application process and enrolling at the start of your programme. Your place will be subject to the terms and conditions stated in your offer letter, the information contained in the relevant University prospectus and/or website, and the policies and procedures of the University (available on the website). These are referred to in the student handbook and student charter and will be sent to you before the start of the programme. For further details please refer to www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/terms. If you become a student, the University will take all reasonable steps to provide the educational services described in this prospectus and other promotional material. However, we cannot guarantee that circumstances beyond our control e.g. industrial action, will not interfere with our ability to provide these services. In such circumstances, the University will take all reasonable steps to minimise disruption to your education.

The admissions policy can be viewed at www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/admissions

STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES Students should use their UCAS application to declare any disabilities so any necessary arrangements and/or provisions can be put in place by our Student Services Team. See page 169 or visit: www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/studentservices

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS The next few years will see substantial qualification reforms as well as the change in the UCAS tariff. Cardiff Met will endeavour to be as flexible as possible during this transitional period so as not to disadvantage applicants. For entry onto our programmes, applicants should normally have Level 3 qualifications. We accept a range of different qualifications, and will consider a variety of different combinations. Specific information on entry requirements can be found on each course page in this prospectus and online at: www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/undergraduate. We welcome applications from applicants who may not necessarily have the required academic qualifications. Generally however, if an applicant has been out of education for more than five years, an Access to Higher Education Diploma or similar may be required in a relevant subject. See page 6 for further information or visit www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/entryrequirements

129

EU/INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

GCSE PROFILE

Students from the EU and further afield will need a qualification acceptable to the University that will indicate their ability to study through the medium of English Language to be able to successfully complete their chosen course. We will require students whose first language isn’t English to meet course specific English Language criteria such as IELTS.

We generally ask for five GCSEs or equivalent at grade C or above for entry onto the majority of our programmes, to include English Language and Maths. For newly reformed GCSEs in England, we will accept Grade 4 as equivalent to a C grade. If you are studying the newly reformed Mathematics GCSE in Wales, we will accept either GCSE Mathematics or GCSE Mathematics - Numeracy.

Cardiff Met recognises the equivalence of qualifications awarded in each member country of the EU and further afield, applicants can visit: www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/qualsinfo for further information. We encourage applicants to obtain a Statement of Comparability from NARIC in order to show how qualifications compare to qualifications from the UK. Non-EU students can also visit: www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/international.

Please check individual course entry pages for specific requirements: www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/undergraduate.


Undergraduate Prospectus 2018.qxp_Back 10/02/2017 19:49 Page 130

AS-LEVELS From 2017 entry onwards, in line with qualification regulators’ statements, AS levels will be repositioned to 40% of an A-level, as opposed to 50%. We will continue to take the whole application into consideration. Cardiff Met will not count points from an AS-level if an applicant has progressed to the full A-level.

A-LEVELS/BTEC A large proportion of our students enter the University with three A-levels or BTEC Level 3 qualifications. We will also consider combinations of these qualifications for entry onto our programmes.

WELSH BACCALAUREATE We welcome applications from those who are completing the Advanced Welsh Baccalaureate alongside A-levels or vocational qualifications. For 2017 entry onwards, the Welsh Baccalaureate Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate will be graded and awarded tariff points equal to an A-level, and our offers will reflect this.

ACCESS TO HIGHER EDUCATION DIPLOMA Cardiff Met welcomes applicants with Access to HE qualifications. It is particularly suitable for applicants who have been out of education for a period of time. Applicants may need additional English language and/or Maths qualifications such as GCSEs for certain programmes. Please check individual course entry information, as entry requirements will vary depending on the programme.

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE (IB) DIPLOMA Cardiff Met is happy to receive applications from those who are studying the IB Diploma. Some programmes will require specific higher level subjects and grades within the IB.

THE UCAS TARIFF From 2017 onwards, UCAS have made major changes to the number of tariff points awarded to qualifications. Grading will still work in the same way (e.g. A-level grades A,B,C etc.), but the number of tariff points awarded will be adjusted. Cardiff Met have changed their entry requirements to reflect this, for example, a standard offer may have been 280 points, but under the new system, that offer will be 112 points. The tables below show some of the most common qualifications students use to gain entry to university along with the old and new tariff system: A-LEVELS Grade

IRISH LEAVING CERTIFICATE BTEC RQF/QCF We welcome applications from those studying the Irish Leaving Certificate. Specific requirements will vary according to programme, but we only consider Higher Level subjects at H4 or above towards a tariff offer.

EXTENDED PROJECT QUALIFICATION SCOTTISH HIGHERS Due to the additional breadth of study the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) brings, we welcome applicants who have studied the Extended Project alongside A-levels or vocational qualifications. Applicants should ensure they list this qualification on their UCAS application form so that it can be taken into consideration as part of the whole application.

We consider Scottish Advanced Highers, Scottish Highers and other Scottish qualifications that meet our entry requirements.

Further information about the new tariff can be found by visiting the UCAS website at: www.ucas.com

FIRST CAMPUS

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES

Cardiff Metropolitan University is a partner in HEFCW's Reaching Wider programme, First Campus. The First Campus programme’s mission and purpose is to provide a series of pathways that inspire and capture the imagination of learners from Communities First areas in South East Wales who are traditionally under-represented in higher education.

The First Campus partnership is now in its fourteenth year of operation and continues to raise aspirations, improve access and create new study opportunities and learning pathways to higher education through its exciting learning activities programmes. It also provides help and support to identified pupils in primary and secondary education through its mentoring programme.

We want to raise aspirations, inspire learners, provide defined progression pathways to higher education and promote learning, success and retention. We also promote fair access to the professions and priority sectors including Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM), Creative & Cultural Industries (CCI), Hospitality & Tourism, Business and Sport, as well as flexible part-time learning opportunities.

FINANCING YOUR WAY THROUGH UNIVERSITY Going to university is a considerable financial investment, but you should remember that holding a higher qualification such as a degree will improve your job prospects, making it easier to find a fulfilling, well paid job.

During your time at university, you will have two main costs to meet: tuition fees and living costs. As a full-time undergraduate student, you may be eligible for a package of financial support made up of: ● A loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees. ● A loan to help with your living costs. ● Various means-tested non-repayable grants (Welsh students only).

* All figures published on this page are correct at the time of publication and relate to September 2017 entry. Please visit our website at www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/fees for the most up-to-date information prior to making an application and for figures relating to 2018 entry.

FAQ’S Understanding what financial support is available and how you pay back any student loans can be confusing, so we have put together some answers to the questions you may have: Q. How much are the tuition fees? A. For 2017 entry, full time undergraduate tuition fees at Cardiff Met are £9,000 per year.*

135

Q. Do I need the funds to pay the tuition fees up front? A. Welsh & EU Students No, the government will be providing loans for the duration of your three or four-year course and this is only repaid once your salary exceeds £21,000 a year. As a Welsh student, the Welsh Assembly Government will provide a non-repayable grant for the first £4,954 for each of your yearly full-time tuition fees, the remaining £4,046 will be paid directly to the University as a repayable loan. English, Scottish, & Northern Irish Students No, the government will be providing loans for the duration of your three or four-year course and this is only repaid once your salary exceeds £21,000 a year. Q. Is there more than one type of student loan available? A. Yes, you can apply for two types of government loans. The first is a tuition fee loan, which is automatically paid to your university to cover the cost of your course. The second is a maintenance loan, which is there to help with the cost of living (such as accommodation, books, food and other additional costs you may incur). Maintenance loans are paid to you in three installments during the academic year to help you manage your money.

Q. Does everyone qualify to receive a student loan? A. Yes, student loans (both tuition fee and maintenance loans) are available for all students who meet the eligibility criteria. To check your eligibility, visit the relevant website for your nationality (see ‘Where can I find out more information?’). Tuition fee loans are available for the full cost of your course, no matter what your personal financial situation. Maintenance loans differ slightly, in that, they are means tested (dependent on your parents’ combined household salary) and given in conjunction with maintenance grants (the grants are non-repayable, meaning you will never have to pay them back). Q. Am I entitled to a grant? A. If you are a Welsh student, you may be entitled to a non-repayable Welsh Government Learning Grant to help you with your living costs. The amount you are entitled to is means tested depending on your parents’ income. English students are no longer entitled to a grant, but instead an increased maintenance loan to cover the cost of living. For more information, please visit the relevant website in the ‘Where can I find out more information?’ section.


Undergraduate Prospectus 2018.qxp_Back 10/02/2017 19:49 Page 136

Q. When and how are the student loans repaid?* A. You won't be eligible to repay the loan until you graduate and begin earning £21,000 or over; monthly repayments are 9% of everything you earn above this figure. Loan repayments are taken from your ‘net’ pay through the Income Tax system. Therefore, like Income Tax and National Insurance, the money never actually makes it into your bank and if your income ever falls below £21,000, you don't get a job or take a career break, your payments will stop. See the table below for example repayments: Annual income before tax

Monthly income before tax

Amount repayable per p/m

Up to £21,000

Up to £1,750

£0

£25,000

£2,083.33

£30

£30,000

£2,500

£67

Q. When should I apply for these loans and financial support? A. If you want to make sure that you receive the first installment of your loan (and grants!) when you start university - you must apply for your financial support as soon as you decide to apply to university. Don’t wait until you are offered a place. Applications must be renewed each academic year.

Q. Where can I find out more information? A. For more information on financing your way through university and how to apply for the various loans available, take a look at the following websites: Welsh & other EU students: www.studentfinancewales.co.uk English students: www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance Northern Irish students: www.studentfinanceni.co.uk Scottish students: www.saas.gov.uk

OPEN DAYS We also run finance talks at all of our Open Days. This is a great opportunity for both students and parents to find out more and ask any questions about student finance. Our Student Support Services also run a Student Finance & Welfare Advisory Service offering confidential, impartial and non-judgemental advice on all aspects of student finance: www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/studentservices

MONEY TIPS Making your money last is an important skill whilst at university, so we’ve put together some handy tips to help you manage your money:  Budget and plan for essential expenses first (e.g. rent and bills).  Shop around for a good student bank account - some come with gifts and benefits e.g. a free Young Person’s Coachcard.  Buy a bus pass (the Met Rider offers heavily subsidised travel across Cardiff).  Cook fresh and in bulk so you can freeze for later (it’s cheaper than buying ready meals and takeaways).  Think about getting a part-time job - they are a great way to earn some extra spending money.  If you’re in difficulty, come and talk to student services - we’re here to help  Make sure you apply for a bursaries and/or scholarships if eligible.  Read advice from our student bloggers on how to save money at university: studentblogs.cardiffmet.ac.uk

We work with students from a wide range of disciplines including Sport, Complementary Healthcare, Art and Design and Business and Management.

This can include social enterprise societies, live projects with local small businesses and supporting worthwhile causes via enterprising activities. In 2016 we launched our brand new start-up incubator facility that is open to Cardiff Met graduates who are launching a business. The incubator provides graduates with a coworking space, and access to our accelerator programme which provides extensive support to entrepreneurs to help make their business a success. Whichever path you decide to take, the Centre for Entrepreneurship can help you on your journey to success.

GRADUATEPROFILE “From the first time I stepped into the Centre for Entrepreneurship I knew I was in safe hands. I set up my first business at 19 years old and this gave me the foundation to become a serial entrepreneur. I am now 24 and have run successful businesses in education and marketing. Without the assistance of the Centre for Entrepreneurship I do not think I would have become the entrepreneur I am today. They instilled confidence in me and made me feel like an entrepreneur, this is the first step in becoming a great business person. Their courses and self-development workshops made me think every single time how I could become a better entrepreneur and how I could excel in my business. The Centre for Entrepreneurship is a great department, they care about giving students access to a world where success is possible and I love supporting them as they have really shaped me as a person.”

Kris began working with the Centre for Entrepreneurship during his first year at Cardiff Met shortly after launching his first business - a tutoring company. The Centre supported Kris via 1:1 support, workshops and skills-development programmes which helped him to turn his passion and entrepreneurial spark into a viable, successful business. In 2013 Kris took part in Countdown to Launch, the Centre’s business start-up week which is sponsored by Santander. Kris was one of five students to be awarded a share of Santander’s £10,000 prize fund to help develop his business. Kris continued to run the tutoring business successfully while completing his studies and after graduating. In 2016 he decided that his interests lay in helping other companies to maximise their potential by getting them to page one of Google and so Launch Local was born, a business specialising in Search Engine Optimisation. In 2016 Kris was selected to join the newly-opened Entrepreneurial Spark start-up incubator in Cardiff City Centre. Kris was one of 70 start-ups to join the first cohort of the programme which received over 150 applications. The Centre is very proud of Kris’ achievements and confident that his entrepreneurial success will continue. Kris Harris BA (Hons) International Business Management Graduate www.launchlocal.co.uk

ACCOMMODATION YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME As first year students, many of you will be living away from home for the first time and our dedicated accommodation team are on hand to help you find suitable, affordable accommodation whether it’s on or off campus.

LIFE IN HALLS

WHAT IT COSTS

GETTING AROUND

Living in Halls will be one of the best experiences in your life and to help you have an unforgettable experience we have a Residence Life programme. This is a series of events aimed at first year students in Cardiff Met Halls and has included tickets to Wales rugby matches, ice skating, film premieres, day trips to Bath and numerous other social events. When you arrive, speak to your Student Warden for more information and how to get involved. As a rule the events are free and will help you get to know Cardiff and each other.

The fees vary according to the type of accommodation, where the accommodation is located and whether catering is included. Fees start at £102 per week for a 40 week contract at Plas Gwyn (based on 2015/16 figures) whilst a catered standard room at Cyncoed starts from £142.00 per week including two meals per day, seven days a week during term time. Fees are updated by the end of March each year for the following academic year and can be found on our website at: www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/hallfees

Please note: None of our campuses offer car-parking facilities for resident students, so the easiest way to travel around Cardiff is by foot, bicycle (there are lockable cycling facilities on all campuses), or by using the Met Rider Service (see opposite).

CARDIFF OUR CITY, YOUR HOME

Cardiff is an exciting, modern capital city that punches well above its weight for its size and relatively small population of around 350,000 people. It has been described as the ‘epitome of cool’ by the renowned travel guide Lonely Planet, and ‘one of the coolest cities in the UK’ by Rough Guides.

AS YOU’LL BE PLANNING MORE THAN JUST A FLEETING VISIT, IT’S WORTH NOTING THAT RESEARCH BY MONEYSUPERMARKET.COM ALSO PUT CARDIFF IN THE TOP THREE UK CITIES FOR QUALITY OF LIFE FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS RUNNING. 151


Undergraduate Prospectus 2018.qxp_Back 10/02/2017 19:51 Page 152

ABOUT THE CITY

GOING OUT

As the Welsh capital, Cardiff boasts an excellent year-round calendar of events, hosting major sporting events like the recent Rugby World Cup and annual six nations championships, major theatre productions, and big-name touring comedy acts and musicians. Top this off with a variety of quirkier events like street food festivals, pop-ups, and secret cinemas, and you’ll find that there’s always something different to do here.

The traditional student areas of Cardiff are found in the suburbs of Roath and Cathays, where there are plenty of pubs, cafes, bars and shops to cater for your every need. Whether you’re looking to watch sport on a big screen with a cheap meal and a drink, or prefer cocktails in a trendy bar and some live music, these areas have something to suit any taste.

Cardiff city centre sits neatly alongside acres of green parkland, and is home to the huge St. David’s Dewi Sant shopping and entertainment centre. There’s also a warren of boutique Victorian shopping arcades, three world-class sporting stadiums, and a lively coffee shop and craft beer scene – not forgetting a stunning waterfront area and the bars and restaurants of Cardiff Bay.

CARDIFF’S BIG CITY ATTITUDE COMBINED WITH ITS SMALL CITY BENEFITS MAKE IT THE IDEAL PLACE TO LIVE, WORK AND STUDY.

In the city centre, traditional pubs and craft beer bars sit alongside the larger nightclubs which all host weekly student themed nights and offers, whilst Mill Lane is popular for its stylish cocktail bar scene. For live music lovers, Cardiff is home to a variety of smaller independent venues like Clwb Ifor Bach and Fuel Rock Club, with the Motorpoint Arena and the recently renamed Principality Stadium (prev. Millennium Stadium) playing host to big-name bands and artists. St David’s Hall in the city centre and The Glee Club in Cardiff Bay are great venues for live comedy, and if film is your thing, Cardiff is home to four multiplex movie theatres, and a handful of pop-up cinemas which hold screenings in unlikely venues like Cardiff Castle and even rooftops and basements around the city. For drama and musical fans, the iconic Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay is a world-famous theatre and arts venue, and at the awardwinning Chapter Arts Centre in Canton you’ll find a cinema, contemporary theatre, bar and café all rolled in to one.

EATING OUT

SPORTS

When it comes to food, Cardiff has persuaded famous chains like Wahaca and Shake Shack (allegedly President Obama’s favourite burger bar) to ditch bigger cities like Liverpool, Bristol and Manchester and open their first restaurants outside London in the Welsh capital.

Cardiff has an incredible sporting heritage. You could spend your weekends here watching football at the Cardiff City stadium, international cricket at the SSE SWALEC, ice hockey with the Cardiff Devils in Cardiff Bay and of course, international rugby at the Principality Stadium.

If big name chains aren’t your thing, the city is teeming with independent restaurants and takeaways. The Canton, Cathays and Roath areas can cater for anything from a fiendish falafel craving to a deep desire for duck pancakes. For example, Canton’s Dusty Knuckle Pizza has been rated among the UK’s top 25 pizzerias by the Sunday Times, while Cathays boasts award-winning high-end Indian restaurant Mint and Mustard. Meanwhile, Roath is home to the 100% vegan Ana Loka Café Bar – named number one Cardiff restaurant in 2016 by Wales’ national newspaper The Western Mail.

If you’re into mass participation or non-competitive sporting events, the Cardiff 10k and Cardiff Half Marathon are gaining popularity every year, with a new full Marathon planned for 2018. The UK’s only Velothon has also become an annual highlight, welcoming more than 10,000 cyclists to Cardiff to tackle a 140km, traffic-free route through South Wales.

Cardiff is also home to a thriving Street Food scene, with dozens of independent vendors popping up in quirky venues like The DEPOT - a 24,000 square-foot derelict warehouse that has been transformed in to a mecca for craft beer and casual dining. The city also hosts a major international food festival that takes place in Cardiff Bay every summer, as well as the annual Great Welsh Beer and Cider Festival and the Cardiff Brewfest craft beer event.

ADVENTURES – IN THE CITY & BEYOND For those seeking adventure within the city, there are plenty of options indoors, including climbing, white-water rafting, ice-skating or swimming in a state-of-the-art Olympic sized pool. But Cardiff also has to be one of the UK’s best-placed cities for easy access to great outdoors. You can enjoy surfing, coasteering or simply sunbathing at world-class beaches, or head to the Brecon Beacons National Park for biking, hiking or horse riding - all within an hour’s drive from the city centre.

COUNSELLING SERVICE

Each year our Disability Service supports about 1,400 students with a range of needs. We work with students on an individual basis to determine support and direct reasonable adjustments across the University. We offer advice and guidance on a range of matters relating to higher education and disability and dyslexia.

The University has its own Disability Assessment Centre situated on the Llandaff campus. Students can have their study skills and technology assessment here as part of the DSA process ensuring that any recommendations are tailored to the specific programme and university. For more information go to the Disability Service website or telephone us (see overleaf).

If you feel anxious, upset or distressed because of personal difficulties during your time at university, counselling can help you to focus and explore your difficulties in a safe and supportive environment with someone who is trained to listen and offer honest feedback.

The Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) is funding available to assist with the additional disability-related cost of attending university if you have a disability, dyslexia, or long-term health condition, including mental health issues.

The Centre is an accredited centre under the DSA Quality Assurance Group (DSA-QAG).

HEALTH SERVICE Examples of the type of support include specialist software, equipment such as recording devices or non-medical helper support such as note takers or study skills support. We can help you make an application for the DSA and guide you through the process. For information on DSA, please go to www.gov.uk/disabled -students-allowancesdsas/overview If you are thinking of studying with us, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss support options as it can take time to put support in place.

Dr Mike Stembridge Cardiff School of Sport Graduate PhD Graduate

RESEARCH Cardiff Metropolitan University has six main centres for research activity – the five academic Schools and the International Centre for Design and Research (PDR). Much of the research at Cardiff Met is applied and is linked in some way to professional practice. We have strong connections with industry as our research addresses real world problems and attempts to find solutions to them.

Research informs our undergraduate programmes in a number of important ways.  Programmes of study at Cardiff Met are modern, appropriate and underpinned by leading-edge research. Curricula are constantly updated when new research findings become known and this means that when students graduate their knowledge is up-to-date and relevant.  Across our five academic Schools and PDR there are centres of particular research expertise and our researchers are leaders in their respective fields. The knowledge they create helps to make our curricula distinctive.

175

 Our senior researchers are Readers and Professors. They contribute to the delivery of our programmes and share both what they have discovered in their research and also their experience of actually doing research.  Many of our programmes of study have elements in which students engage in their own problem-based learning and develop their own research skills. Working in excellent facilities and with high specification equipment, students become accomplished researchers and create their own new knowledge. The research skills they develop and the experience they gain help to make them very employable.

 The delivery of our programmes is also informed by research about how students study and learn, and how our academic staff facilitate learning.  With a positive experience of research during their undergraduate programmes, some of our students pursue a career in research either through taught postgraduate provision (e.g. MA, MBA, MSc programmes) or through research degrees (e.g. MPhil, PhD) either at Cardiff Met or elsewhere.
