If you are a current student (studying on a Foundation Programme or HNC/D) and wish to top-up to an undergraduate programme, you will need to contact your Programme Director in the first instance and complete the Declaration of Intent Form which can be found on http://www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/top-up/.

The Programme Director will then need to inform Academic Registry if your are permitted to progress. This process excludes those applying for BSc Dental Technology, BSc Healthcare Sciences, BSc Human Nutrition & Dietetics, BSc Podiatry, BSc Social Work and BSc Speech & Language Therapy where applications must be made through UCAS (http://www.ucas.com/) as these programmes have either limited places or are funded by NHS or NLIAH.
