About Cardiff University and Scholarship

International students pursuing undergraduate and graduate-taught degrees are eligible for financial assistance through the Cardiff University Vice Chancellors Scholarship. International candidates who have received offers for selected undergraduate programs will be automatically eligible for a Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship.

A tuition fee discount will be given to those who meet the scholarship’s eligibility requirements. The prize cannot be used to waive any mandatory deposits, nor is there a monetary substitute available. Full-time, Cardiff-based students who begin their studies in September 2023 are eligible for the award. No other entry year is eligible to receive the honor.

In Cardiff, Wales, there is a public research university called Cardiff University (Welsh: Prifysgol Caerdydd). It was founded in 1883 as the University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire and, in 1893, it was designated as one of the University of Wales’ foundation colleges. In 1988, it united with the University of Wales Institute of Science and Technology (UWIST) to become the University of Wales College, Cardiff, which later changed its name to the University of Wales, Cardiff. Degree-granting authority was granted to it in 1997, but it did not use it. In 1999, it chose Cardiff University as its operating name; in 2005, it made this name its legal one and started issuing its degrees independently.

The Russell Group of highly regarded British institutions has just Cardiff University as a member. Three heads of state or government, two Nobel laureates, 15 Royal Society fellows, 11 Royal Academy of Engineering fellows, 7 British Academy fellows, 21 Academy of Medical Sciences fellows, and 34 Academy of Social Sciences fellows are among the university’s faculty and alumni.

Robert Huber and Sir Martin Evans, both Nobel Laureates, are employed by Cardiff. Several Cardiff University employees have been chosen as Fellows of the Royal Society. These individuals include John M. Pearce, Professor of Psychology, Graham Hutchings, FRS, Professor of Physical Chemistry and Director of the Cardiff Catalysis Institute, School of Chemistry, Ole Holger Petersen, MRC Professor, and Director of Cardiff School of Biosciences. 

The nonprofit Stonewall named Cardiff University in its 2013 Gay by Degree list as one of the top UK colleges for supporting LGBT students.
