Information for Current Students
International Student Barometer 2013 - Your views count!
In 2012 our international students rated Cardiff Metropolitan for the fourth year in a row as the TOP UK University for overall student experience. This result confirmed our place as a top quality institution and more importantly informed others that our students are studying at one of the UK's leading modern Universities.
We hope to continue our successful record in this year's survey and will be welcoming you all to take part in the ISB. An email will be sent to you with further details about the survey and how you can take party.
As a thank-you for completing the questionnaire, i-graduate again offers the opportunity to win a £1000 cash prize or £1000 donation to a charity of your choice.
Please note: The ISB forms part of a wider ongoing study and is independently administered for the University by the International Graduate Insight Group (i-graduate.org)
