Support for International Students



​​The International Office’s Welfare Team is here to offer you help and support for the duration of your time at Cardiff Met.

We have a dedicated and highly trained team of welfare staff who are here to provide you with advice about all aspects of living and studying in the UK.

Our Welfare Officers are available throughout the year to provide you with assistance and advice on many issues such as dealing with homesickness, immigration, accommodation, health and managing your finances and they also provide general guidance about living in the UK including procedures and regulations that international students may not be familiar with.
