The British Higher Education system starts with the Foundation Year programme for international students and leads to the undergraduate Bachelor programmes followed by the Postgraduate Masters programmes. Following graduation, students decide if they wish to continue their studies with a PhD or start working in the job sector. 94.8% of Cardiff Met graduates are working or continuing their studies within 6 months of graduating.
Start in Morocco, Continue in the UK (Optional)
SIST Students have the option to transfer to the UK at any time of their studies. Most of our students choose to study their Bachelor programme in Morocco and opt for a specialised Masters degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University in the UK. Students are free to complete their university studies here in Morocco and obtain both Bachelor and Masters Degrees from Cardiff Metropolitan University.
