OPEN DAY 3RD JULY Restricted Parking- Main Building, Colum Drive, Queens Building The University will be closing the Main Building car park for the duration of the University Open Day on Friday 3rd July. The car park will be used for two large reception marquees, mini bus parking and parking for visitors with mobility difficulties. Half of Main Building car park will also be closed on the 1st and 2nd July to enable the marquees to be erected prior to the event. It is for this reason normal users need to be aware of the restricted parking on the 1st and 2nd July and make alternative parking arrangements on Friday 3rd July Due to the new CARBS building on Colum Drive, there will be limited alternative parking available in the Cassim car park by the Business School. Unfortunately, we have no other alternative parking available. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused.
Santander Universities, through Hispanic Studies at Cardiff University, is announcing a competition for the most inspiring volunteer work experience by a Cardiff undergraduate student during their year abroad. The winner of this competition will receive £500. To enter the competition, students must submit an account in English of their experience as a volunteer. This can take the form of a written report, a piece of creative writing, a comic you’ve drawn, a song you’ve written, a photo story, or any other format, but should contain a substantial element of text that describes your volunteer experience. Entries that are otherwise entirely text-based should be about 1000 words and accompanied by at least one relevant photograph. Entries will be judged both on their content — i.e. the experience they relate — and their presentation. Originality of form will be valued as much as correctness of expression. Eligibility: Cardiff undergraduate students who have done volunteer work in a Spanish-speaking country during their year abroad 2014–15. Submission deadline: 31 August 2015 The winner will be announced by 30 September 2015.
