Cardiff Met is proud of all its alumni and we continue to support you as you embark on life after university.
We provide early career guidance for recent graduates and aim to keep you connected throughout your career. We also provide opportunities for you to inspire our students by speaking at events or offering work experience opportunities, and this is just the tip of the iceberg!
We love hearing about where life has taken you since graduating and keeping you up to date with all that's going on at Cardiff Met.
