Parking at Llandaff Campus

Unfortunately, Cardiff Metropolitan, like most Universities has no parking on its Llandaff campus from Monday to Friday (unless you are registered disabled), so please plan your journey in advance. However, the Landaff Campus car park is open to those visiting us on Open Days held on Saturdays.

Interview Days

Like most Art & Design courses we receive more applications than we have places. You can expect then that we are looking for the most enthusiastic, inquisitive and able to study with us. However, it is important to know that the way we judge real ability is not based upon exam results alone. For this reason we conduct ‘Interview Days’.

During your interview the subject team will want to know about you as a person. They will want to find out if you are serious and well informed about your choice of subject. They will also want to know whether you are equipped with the skills and attitudes that show that you have the potential to make the best use of your studies and whether you deserve to win a place at Cardiff School of Art & Design.

CSAD is host to a wide range of evening, weekend and masterclasses under the name 'Cardiff Open'. The courses on offer cover many art and design based subjects such as painting, ceramics, drawing, making and photography.
