If your results aren’t what you expected, please don’t worry as there are many options open to you. Cardiff Met will be operating an Advice Line from 8am on Thursday 13th August and will be encouraging anyone with any queries to contact us via, telephone, e-mail and live chat.
We can normally accept a Statement of Results (SoR) if it has been signed and stamped by your school/college. We understand that this may not be possible at present, therefore we will accept a SoR without the usual verification. For programmes with certain professional requirements, we will require further verification when schools/colleges re-open (signature/stamp; confirmation letter on headed paper; email from institution)
We will be in touch with you before the start of your programme to let you know if we need any further verification.
The 2020 Autumn term will begin w/c September 28 for all new students, with a newly developed induction programme that has been designed in conjunction with the Students’ Union. Students at all levels will then commence their studies from w/c October 5.
During the Autumn term at least, we will ensure that our high quality learning, teaching and student support services will continue to be delivered through a combination of on-campus and online delivery and that all students will benefit from small group, peer-assisted and individual learning programmes. In doing so we are able to ensure that all the learning outcomes of your programme of study will be met in full.
Our academic staff are now finalising all of the detail on a programme by programme basis and a more detailed statement providing further information for each programme will be available for new and returning students on 13 June.
No, we have gone to great lengths to ensure that you will continue to receive the high standard of education and support that Cardiff Met is renowned for.

We are committed to maintaining these high standards, despite the current restrictions and having been planning, developing and refining our learning and teaching methods to ensure that this is the case for all students.
This will ensure that you will continue to benefit from small class sizes and extensive one-to-one support from your lecturers and personal tutor, rather than extensive provision of large lectures.
All students will continue to benefit from the Cardiff Met EDGE - our successful approach to embedding entrepreneurial, digital, global and ethical competencies alongside core module and programme content. This innovative approach ensures that you are equipped with the skills and experience required to succeed in what is anticipated to be a competitive employment market for the foreseeable future.
