03 November 2021

Cardiff Metropolitan University has been named the Times Higher Education (THE) University of the Year following its 2021 awards ceremony which took place in London this week.

Having previously been named ‘The Times and Sunday Times Welsh University of the Year 2021’, Cardiff Met is considered the most financially sustainable university in Wales and Capita’s top ‘Employer of Choice’.

President and Vice-Chancellor of Cardiff Metropolitan University, Professor Cara Aitchison, said: "This award recognises and rewards the values-driven character of our university and the significant improvements across all areas of performance in recent years.

"Winning this national award has put Cardiff Met on the map of high calibre UK universities and builds upon our recent success in major league tables and the award of the title of Welsh University of the Year 2021 by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide."

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
