​Welcome from the Dean

​​​​​Dean of School - Professor Richard Tong

Cardiff School of Sport, with its 60 year history, is a recognised centre of excellence in the UK and has established a national and international reputation for the quality of its academic, sporting and research work.

The undergraduate and postgraduate sport degrees in the Cardiff School of Sport are structured to provide distinctive pathways which cater for individual student interests and meet the vocational requirements of an expanding marketplace. The School achieved an overall rating of 87% satisfaction in the 2016 National Student Survey  with its newest programme BSc Sport Studies having 100% satisfaction.  The school continues to respond to student feedback and new facilities due to open in 2017 and 2018 will improve the student experience still further.

In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework 87% of our submitted research was rated as 'world leading' (4*) or 'internationally excellent' (3*) and the Times Higher Education ranked the University's joint submission with Bangor University as 7th out of 51 submissions.

If you are considering applying for one of our sport degree courses, full or part-time; undergraduate or postgraduate; taught or research-based, then I trust that you will find the range of courses attractive. Cardiff is a wonderful city in which to study and the Cardiff School of Sport has an enviable reputation for its academic provision and sporting excellence.
