General


Aside from the courses listed above, there are other generic costs relating to printing/binding e.g. Final Dissertation. If you are studying a course that doesn’t require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, but as part of your dissertation, you come into contact with young or vulnerable adults, you will be required to undertake a criminal records check.


The current cost of an Enhanced DBS is £50.50 with an additional £7.80 for identification verification through the post office if you are unable to meet the face to face identification check with Cardiff Met (subject to change). We also recommend the subscription to the Update Service which is an annual cost of £13 (subject to change).


For applicants who choose to undertake a 48-week industrial work placement as part of their academic programme, there will be additional costs associated with this, e.g. Visa applications, travel and living costs, etc.


If you choose to undertake an ERASMUS placement during your studies, there will be living costs associated with living in the European Country for the duration.
