Cardiff Metropolitan University has opened its first office in India, in conjunction with its business partner Planet EDU. This marks further commitment to the success of the partnership which was launched by the Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones in April 2012.
Cardiff Met is ranked top in the UK for international student satisfaction. Based in Gurgaon, New Delhi, the Cardiff Met Office will lead the development of the University's internationalisation activities in India and South Asia.
The Cardiff Met office will play an important role in supporting the University's activities in India and will offer enhanced support for students, forging wider and deeper relationships with in-country partners, and provide further opportunities for educational partnerships in India.
Offering a wide variety of courses, and boasting an international reputation for quality education and career-focused degrees, Cardiff Met has a long history of welcoming international students to the university, with over 1100 international students from circa 100 countries studying on campus in 2012.
Cardiff Met Vice-Chancellor Professor Chapman said "We are delighted to be opening the Cardiff Met office, in conjunction with our partners Planet EDU, in Gurgaon, New Delhi. The Cardiff Met office reflects the rapid growth in the University's work in India, and we are delighted to now have a continuous presence in the country.
"The University has a longstanding tradition of welcoming Indian students, and our Indian graduates succeed in their chosen career paths. Our India Office will support Cardiff Met continuing to be a destination of choice for Indian students."
