Virtual Opportunities

​Global Opportunities is committed to ensuring that all students have access to international experiences during their time at Cardiff Met.

These experiences aren't just about travelling abroad. We also offer virtual opportunities to allow students that cannot or do not want to travel overseas the chance to take part.

​​

Due to travel restrictions this academic year, Global Opportunities has been working on ideas to give you a cultural opportunity from the comfort of your own home! We know this isn't the same as a physical trip however we feel you will enjoy these programmes just as much.  Don't forget by completing this virtual programme you will receive a Global Opportunities digital badge!!

Please remember the GO Global Bursary funding call opens on the 11th January and closes on the 26th April.

 

Global Opportunities is exited to announce a new call for students to apply for a virtual summer internship.
