About Cardiff Metropolitan University

We trace our history back to 1865, when the School of Art first opened in the Old Free Library in Cardiff.  Since we developed into a university, we have remained rooted in Wales while providing practice-focused and professionally oriented education to students from around the globe. Our vision emboldens this commitment to education, research and innovation undertaken in partnership with our students, governments, business and industry and with tangible benefits for individuals, society and the economy.  We are committed to ensuring that every student fulfils their potential to make outstanding graduate-level contributions to their own and future generations.
