Summer School

The Summer School is run each July and provides an opportunity for adults to try some new learning for free. We run over 50 free courses throughout the month both on campus and in various community locations.  Courses are either introduction to subjects that learning could then consider taking at Cardiff Metropolitan University or are linked to study skills to improve your skills as a learner.

96% of Summer School attendees said the course that they attended was either good or excellent.  Whoever you are we have a course that you will enjoy and feel comfortable studying.
