IN THE BEGINNING: The first year experience
You can read interviews with first year Undergraduate students on the ‘In the Beginning‘ website. On the website they describe their experiences and aspirations, and offer an insight into their practice as emerging artists and designers.

If you’d like to find out more about what our Graduates do on completion of their studies, visit the ‘After Graduation’ web page here.

Undergraduate finances, accommodation and student services
The School along with many other Art Schools no longer charges additional studio fees. Instead core learning activities are centrally funded.

Consumable Resources: The core learning fund will address core-learning needs only. As with the previous Studio Fee system, it will not cover those things which the student elects to use which are specialised, one-offs, unusual or excessive, for example in their degree show work. This system is reviewed on an annual basis.

Field Trips: Reasonable costs of UK trips that are core to student’s learning are covered by the core learning fund. It doesn’t cover the costs of Field Module choices that may involve high travel and accommodation costs, e.g. a placement in the States.

Finance, accommodation and student services: Full details about financing, accommodation, student services and what it’s like being a student in Cardiff can all be found on the Cardiff Metropolitan University’s ‘Study with Us’ web pages.
