What is the induction programme?

The Induction Programme for International Students consists of a week of events before your studies begin, designed to give you the best possible start to your time at Cardiff.  We know that arriving in a new place is a challenging and exciting experience. So at Cardiff, we take great care to help you settle into your new way of life in the University.

At the induction events you will find all the information, fun and friends you need to make your transition to UK life as carefree as possible.

It is highly recommended that you plan to attend as many events as possible. Studies show that international students that participate in induction settle better into their new lifestyle in the UK.

There are different events organised for you if you are an Erasmus Student, Study Abroad or International Exchange Student or a Research Postgraduate Student.
