GO Wales at Cardiff Metropolitan University
Within Career Development Services you will find a GO Wales team who work together with other higher education institutions in Wales to provide the following services for graduates and students in the last two years of their course.
- GO Wales Placements
- Paid placements of approximately 10 weeks, in the summer for students and all-year round for graduates. Our GO Wales Advisers can help you to find the right opportunity and make effective use of the online applications system. Just give them a call.
- GO Wales Work Tasters

In most cases we can offer a contribution towards travel expenses.
