Cardiff Metropolitan University (UWIC)


Recommended Posts

We trace our history back to 1865 when the School of Art opened in the Old Free Library in Cardiff. Since we developed into a university, we have remained rooted in Wales while providing practice-focused and professionally oriented education to students from around the globe. Our vision emboldens this commitment to education, research, and innovation undertaken in partnership with our students, governments, business, and industry and with tangible benefits for individuals, society, and the economy. We are committed to ensuring that every student fulfills their potential to make outstanding graduate-level contributions to their own and future generations.
Our Strategic Plan for 2017/18 to 2022/23 emboldens this commitment to education, research, and innovation undertaken in partnership with our students, governments, business, and industry and with tangible benefits for individuals, society, and the economy. Our University is committed to ensuring that every student can fulfill their full potential to make outstanding graduate-level contributions to their own and future generations through sustainable economic growth and social cohesion for our City, Wales, and the full world.
Improving the student experience is at the heart of our values-driven strategy. Our origins in the Cardiff School of Art have established a productive environment in which creativity is highly prized. Our unique and successful approach to internationalization enables us to advocate diversity from a position of strength. We are all committed to championing academic freedom. Our outlook, our research, and our mind-set prioritize innovation. These four values are driven by the behaviors of our talented staff and students, by our leadership, trust, courage, and accountability to each other and to our stakeholders and collaborative partners we are one community: we are the ambitious and competitive Cardiff Met of improvement, growth, and diversification that will ensure our place in the top 50 UK universities by 2022/23 and a place in the global university rankings for the first time. Our reputational enhancement will make Cardiff Met a university of the first choice for students wishing to study art and design, business and management, education and public services, sport and health sciences, and digital, data, and design technologies.
Investment in the student journey and our estate and facilities will enhance our student experience and outcomes. This will be achieved by extending our reach to partner schools and colleges in Wales through our new Cardiff Open Colleges model, improving our learning, teaching and student support on campus, and integrating our global partners. A new curriculum delivery model will enable students to develop ethical, digital, global, and entrepreneurial skills, experience, knowledge, confidence, and resilience in addition to their subject specialist knowledge.
Our reputation as the University judged to have the highest quality research amongst 'post 92' universities in the most recent UK Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) will be strengthened through the creation of Global Academies for world-leading interdisciplinary and international research and innovation with impact. Ours is a truly international university with students from over 140 countries. Our growing reputation and size will ensure more leading international academics and students choose to work and study at Cardiff Met.
Ours is a future where talent will be attracted and supported and where creativity, diversity, freedom, and innovation will establish Cardiff Met as one of the world's most international and impactful universities. This University changes the world one student at a time.
Cardiff Metropolitan's structure and governance enable us to fulfill our strategic objectives and ensure we are well managed and accountable to our stakeholders.
Cardiff Metropolitan University's constitution has been drawn up under the Education Reform Act 1988 (as amended). It provides for the appointment of a Board of Governors with responsibility for the educational character and mission of the Institute and oversight of its activities.
The Board of Governors has to govern Cardiff Metropolitan University to achieve and develop its primary objectives of teaching, learning and research, and related activities. It is the Board's function to consider and approve Cardiff Metropolitan University's strategic plan, which sets Cardiff Metropolitan University's academic aims and objectives, and to oversee the financial, physical and staffing strategies necessary to achieve it.
The University's Management Board is the most senior executive decision-making body for matters relating to the management of the University. The Management Board is responsible for significant decisions that impact strategy and risk in the areas of Finance Estates and Facilities Human Resources Student Services Marketing, Communications, and Student Recruitment and Library and Information Services.
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 are intended to help make the public sector more open and accountable. It allows members of the public to scrutinize the decisions they make and the services they provide.
Cardiff Metropolitan University is committed to promoting and implementing best practices in Equality and Diversity (E) to provide a working and learning environment to enable both staff and students to reach their full potential.
We wish to work beyond the legislative requirements in the delivery of E&D policies and aim for equality of opportunity to be embedded in everything we do. Cardiff Metropolitan University is an organization where diversity is valued, equality is promoted, and services are delivered to support all staff and students.
