Statement on the recent UK Government announcement on a proposed cap in numbers for English-domiciled students studying at universities in Wales

At Cardiff Met, we have maintained our values-driven approach to decision making and prioritised the health and wellbeing of our students and staff throughout the Coronavirus crisis.

We have tried to ensure that we provide our current and prospective students with the assurances and clarity that they have needed at the earliest possible opportunity, and we recognise that some applicants may now be facing additional uncertainty in light of the recent UK Government announcement on a proposed cap in numbers for English-domiciled students studying at universities in Wales.

We want to reassure our prospective students who live in England, or anywhere else in the UK, that they will not be disadvantaged by that announcement. Regardless of whether they have already applied or are about to apply, are in receipt of an unconditional or a conditional offer, or have accepted a place with us for the next academic year or are still considering their options, our commitment is that no applicant will be disadvantaged because of where they live.

We know that there will be families across the UK who will already have spent many hours researching and weighing up options for university before deciding on the best option for them. We believe strongly that if a student has made the decision to make Cardiff Met their home, they should not be forced into changing direction at such a late stage in the application process.

We are committed to living our values and demonstrating our support for each and every member of the Cardiff Met family. We would like to reassure all applicants that if you decide to study with Cardiff Metropolitan University, we will support your choice and will be delighted to welcome you to Cardiff in September.
