About the Scholarship:

Cardiff University has consistently been rated as one of the best teaching and research institutions in the United Kingdom by independent government assessments. In addition to its amazing modern facilities and engaging approach to teaching, the University of Wales has a rich history of recent accomplishments, and almost 30,000 students, including nearly 10,000 international students, are enrolled at the Welsh university right now. A wide range of business professions benefit from Cardiff University’s experience in research and research-led teaching, which includes the social sciences, engineering, technology, and a variety of other fields. The University is now ranked 5th in the United Kingdom for the quality of its research, and it is placed 160th in the world according to the QS World Rankings. “The Oxford of Journalism,” according to some, describes the School of Journalism, Media, and Cultural Studies. In the six months following graduation, 95% of Cardiff University graduates find employment or further study, with 78% finding graduate-level employment. Cardiff University is also a member of the famous Russell Group, which is comprised of 24 of the country’s most prominent research universities. A coach transport service from Cardiff and Heathrow airports to your hotel is provided by the International Development department. This program includes five days of events meant to expose students to the city of Cardiff, the University of Cardiff, the surrounding countryside and the rest of the city’s culture. The trip of South Wales is a terrific way for students to meet new people in a casual environment, which is exactly what they were looking for. A variety of international societies are also accessible at Cardiff University, with groups for Asian, Bangladeshi, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Nigerian, Pakistani, and Thai students as well as organizations for Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Malaysian students. Cardiff University is the only Welsh university to be ranked in the top 200 in the QS World Rankings, which are published annually. Cardiff University was ranked 5th in the United Kingdom for the quality of its research contributions in the 2014 Research Assessment Exercise. Among those who performed very well were the following subjects: All first-year overseas undergraduate students who attend the university through the usual admissions cycle are guaranteed a room in one of the university’s 5,100 student residence hall rooms. Self-catered flats and students provide the great majority of student homes, which consist of single en-suite study bedrooms. For individuals with a sporting interest, the main accommodation site at Talybont is home to a state-of-the-art sports training village and fitness complex that served as a training base for participants at the London 2012 Olympics. Cardiff University’s campus is around 2 kilometers from the city’s principal train and bus station, with Cardiff International Airport only 17 kilometers away and London little over two hours distant by train. Cardiff is one of the fastest-growing cities in Europe, and it is particularly popular with students, who are lured to the city by its low cost of living, vibrant nightlife, excellent sporting facilities, and rich cultural heritage and heritage.
