This award allows a Scholar to conduct research in the their area of specialization at Cardiff University. Since 1883, Cardiff University’s world-leading scientists and academics have achieved prominence for their innovations, discoveries and advancements, transforming the world-view of their fields of expertise.

Today, Cardiff is ranked in the top 160 universities in the world (QS World University Rankings, 2021) and continues to foster creativity and momentum. A member of the Russell Group of Britain’s 24 leading research universities, the University leaped to fifth place in the UK’s most recent Research Excellence Framework, with 87% of research assessed as world-leading or internationally excellent (Research Excellence Framework, 2014).

The university's breadth of expertise in research-led teaching encompasses the humanities; the natural, physical, health, life, and social sciences; engineering and technology; and a commitment to lifelong learning.

Cardiff is the capital city of Wales. Bursting with culture, cuisine, architecture, entertainment, and history – from winding arcades to huge retail centres, and the 130 acre back garden of Bute Park right on the University’s doorstep – Cardiff is regularly ranked as one of the UK’s best cities for study, with its affordable living costs, excellent transport links and the University’s campus at its heart.
