UWIC changes name to Cardiff Metropolitan University
From 1 November, the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (UWIC), will be known as Cardiff Metropolitan University.
Last month the institution rejected a call to form a super-university with the University of Wales, Newport and the University of Glamorgan.
In a statement it said it looked forward to a bright future as a strong, student-centred university.
Eleven thousand students from more than 125 countries attend the university which offers over 100 undergraduate courses.
