Self-funded overseas students who have applied for Cardiff University’s Masters of Pharmacy (MPharm, UCAS code B230) program for entry in 2016 are eligible to apply for these scholarships.
Cardiff is established as one of Britain’s leading universities. Its ambition is to be among the top 100 universities in the world and top 20 in the UK.
The university is consistently recognised as providing high quality research-based university education and was ranked 122nd in the world by the QS World University Rankings 2015–16, as well as achieving the highest student satisfaction rating in the 2013 National Student Survey for universities in Wales. The research of Cardiff was ranked 5th overall in the UK in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, with some areas ranked top in the country.
Cardiff University continues the tradition of all three of its former institutions in providing high quality research-based education in Wales, as shown in its five-year standing as the best centre of excellence in Wales in the Sunday Times League Tables. Cardiff is also the only university in Wales to be a member of the Russell Group of Research Intensive Universities. Cardiff is by far the strongest research-focused university in Wales. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, 33 out of the 34 research areas submitted by the University for assessment were shown to be undertaking research that includes world-leading work.
In the case of applicants whose first language is not English, competence in the English language is also a criterion of admission.
