Bristol airport is 50 miles or 80 Km from Cardiff. If you are arriving during the day, it will take around 2 hours 30 minutes to get from Bristol airport to Cardiff University.
You will need to get the Bristol International Flyer bus service from the airport into Centre of Bristol (around 8 miles or 13 km from the airport) and then on to Cardiff either by train or coach. This bus service runs every 10 minutes from the airport.
Take the Bristol International Flyer. From the airport to Bristol Temple Meads train station, the fare for this journey is £6.
Once at Bristol Temple Meads, the train service to Cardiff Central runs every 30 minutes. A one-way ticket costs around £15.
The Bristol International Flyer also makes a stop at Bristol Bus Station, where you can catch the National Express coach service to Cardiff.
Coaches run far less frequently than trains, around every two hours and tickets cost around £10.
Both the coach and train drop off at Cardiff Central Bus/Railway Station.
From here it is recommended you take a taxi to your accommodation. This will cost about £5-£10 depending on the distance to your accommodation and how much luggage you are carrying.
There are taxis easily available from outside the Railway station.
