Our values-driven, progressive University has grown, diversified and improved significantly and we are the current Times Higher Education UK and Ireland University of the Year and The Times and The Sunday Times Welsh University of the Year 2021.

Partnership working is key to our success and our primary partnership is between the University as an employer and the people who work and study here; our staff say they are proud to work ‘for’ and not just ‘at’ Cardiff Met and nurturing this sense of belonging and partnership is key to the success of our university and our students.

Our growth agenda, realised through the development of over 60 new degree programmes since 2019 and evidenced by an increase in turnover of 35% over the last 6 years, is driven by our values and our focus on our people. Our staff have placed Cardiff Met as the top employer of choice in UK universities’ external surveys 2019 and 2020 (Capita), and in 2022 our staff engagement score is the highest in the sector (People Insight).
