Confirmation Of Your Place At Cardiff Met
From July onwards, Admissions will start to receive BTEC results directly from UCAS. Providing your results have been received by Cardiff Met and you have met your offer conditions, we will confirm your place online for you.
Mid August, Admissions will receive the Access to HE Diploma results and A Level results directly from UCAS. Providing your results have been received by Cardiff Met and you have met your offer conditions, we will confirm your place through UCAS.
It is advisable that you are not on holiday when results are published. Unfortunately, Cardiff Met does experience a number of issues where not all results are not received, or there are discrepancies in achieved results, and in some cases delays of the full qualification being published. In these situations, you need to be contactable.
If your place is not confirmed by mid August, please contact us to find out why. This may be due to us not receiving your results, at which point you can send us evidence of your exam results. If you have not yet received your certificates, confirmation directly from your School or College will be sufficient, provided it is in the form of an official letter.
If you know you have not met the conditions of your offer and your place is still Conditional, please contact us to check we have received all of your results. Once we have all of your results, your application will be referred to the Programme Director to make a final decision on your application.
You will be sent your Student Joining Pack to be used in conjunction with our dedicated New Students website, where you will be able to download your joining information relating to Induction Week. Please make sure you read this information.

If you have any queries relating to online enrolment please contact email@example.com or call
029 2020 5669.
If your place has been confirmed, but you have not been sent your enrolment details, this may be due to your pending DBS disclosure or Occupational Health Screening clearance.
You should have enrolled prior to attending your Induction Week.
Changes & Discontinuation of Programmes
The University makes every effort to ensure that the information provided to applicants on programmes being offered is as accurate and up-to-date as possible. However, programmes of study are continually reviewed and there may well be some changes between the time of publication and the time the student starts the programme. The running of University programmes is also subject to minimum numbers, i.e. a certain number of students need to undertake the programme for it to be viable. Having a minimum number of students on a programme aims towards enriching the student experience.
Where changes are made or a programme is discontinued, applicants are informed of this as soon as possible via a letter, preferably before accepting the offer of a place, so that opportunity is given to consider an alternative programme at Cardiff Met or elsewhere. If a decision to discontinue a programme is made after applicants have been offered a place, Admissions will make every effort to offer relevant alternatives and provide assistance to applicants to find that alternative choice.
For further information on changes to programmes, please refer to the disclaimer included in the Student Handbook (www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/studenthandbook) which you will receive as part of your joining instructions in the Summer.
Subject to Validation Programmes
All new programmes at the University must undergo validation, the purpose of which is to ensure that the proposed programme is alligned to the University's Mission and its content reflects appropriate levels of academic standards and quality. Any changes made to a programme during the validation event will be communicated to you and updated on our course pages.
