Croeso i Gaerdydd Welcome to Cardiff!

Moving to Cardiff might be the start of a new chapter in your life. Perhaps this is your first time away from home, or you may have raised a family and have now decided to study. Whatever your reason, we hope you will be happy during your time here.

You may decide to stay longer than you originally planned, you may even decide to make Cardiff your home.

Cardiff is a diverse, multilingual, and vibrant city. It’s a city where 60,000 people speak Welsh.

If you decide to learn Welsh, we can help you accelerate your learning through the varied activities the capital can offer. We hope that being in Cardiff will inspire you to learn the language and learn more about Welsh culture, history, and heritage.
