Cardiff is a very accessible city with good road, rail and air connections. London can be reached by train in just over two hours. Cardiff International Airport is located just outside the city and the M4 motorway provides fast links to the rest of the UK. Due to the size of the city and the central location of campus buildings, it’s very easy to get around on foot. Public transport links are good and cycling is also very popular in the city.

 

It’s undertaking its biggest campus upgrade for a generation – a £600m investment in its future. This major upgrade will transform the campus for the 21st Century. It is constructing an iconic student building at the heart of the University, the Centre for Student Life. Innovation Central will be providing companies with the resources and support to encourage growth with confidence. The Translational Research Facility is home to two institutes, both using world-leading research to improve industrial processes.
