Read a message from Claire Morgan, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Education and Student Experience sent to undergraduate and postgraduate taught students on 18 April.

Dear student,

Croeso nol! (welcome back!) – I hope you had a restful Easter break and are feeling ready to dive into the new semester.

When you’re next in your Centre for Student Life, be sure to check out the new artwork that brings together fifty of the changes we’ve made at the university because of your feedback. I am always keen to emphasise the importance of your views and how we act up on them to shape the university, and there are plenty of ways you can continue to share your feedback.

Diolch (thanks) to those of you who submitted a nomination for the forthcoming Enriching Student Life awards. We received over 1,300 nominations for the awards which are run in partnership with the university and Students’ Union. Shortlisting is now complete, and you can take a look at the shortlist on the student intranet. I look forward to celebrating with nominees and winners on 9 May.


I’m really excited to be joining many of you at Welsh Varsity on 24 April. Team Cardiff are travelling to Swansea this year to compete in over 30 sports including both the men’s and women’s rugby matches at the Stadium. Best of luck to all those of you who are taking part, and remember, as ambassadors of our university, please enjoy the events and behave responsibly.

Getting Involved: Become a Student Champion

We’re now recruiting Student Champions for the next academic year with applications open until 12 May. Champions play a pivotal role, working in partnership with the Cardiff Learning and Teaching Academy to develop and shape your student experience, as well as the digital learning environment. You will also gain skills and experience to help with future employment.

Exams support

With exams and assessments on the horizon, I know the final semester can be a stressful time. Remember to pace yourselves, prioritise your tasks, and use the available study resources and support available to you. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you are struggling.

Final years

If you are in your final year, you should have received your invitation to graduation and can find all the information you need to plan your day on the website. You also have until 30 April to complete the National Student Survey (NSS). The results are really important, and we pride ourselves in the way we use your feedback to continually improve student experience.

I wish you all the best for this final semester, and hope you have an enjoyable and productive few months.

Best wishes,
