University of South Wales

The University of South Wales is one of the largest universities in the UK offering our students excellent opportunities and bright prospects.

Why study at the University of South Wales?

Our teaching is informed by what happens in the real world and our courses are designed to develop new skills that are essential for the workplace. All this is strengthened by our employability schemes, business start-up support and opportunities to get actual experience, often as part of your course. It is an approach that works - 95% of our graduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduation.

Training in state-of-the-art simulated environments include a courtroom, a forensic scene-of-crime house, film and music studies, a stock trading floor, a clinical simulation centre for medical and nursing professionals, an aerospace centre with a real airliner and flight simulator, and sporting facilities used and endorsed by world champions such as the All Blacks and Springboks.

Our size means we can offer an exceptional range of subjects and courses, at every level - from Foundation to PhD. It also means that our links with industry and business are hard to beat. We work with world leaders such as Microsoft, British Airways and the BBC to inform our courses and offer work experience.

The University also works with professional bodies to ensure that what you learn meets professional standards and is relevant in the real world. Many of our courses hold accreditations by leading professional bodies in specialist fields.
