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

We’re among the largest universities in the UK, with over 23,000 students, welcoming 3,000 students each year from 124 countries all over the world.

Here at USW, you will find approachable staff and friendly students ready to welcome you and make you feel at home.

We can assure you that your experience here will be like no other, allowing you to make friends and memories to last a lifetime.

Remember you are not alone; there will be many students in the same position as you, taking the leap to study in a new country and environment. We will be there every step of the way to help you.

To help new students settle in and make friends, we run the International Welcome Programme – a series of fun events, activities and information sessions. You’ll be part of a great international student community.

This doesn’t end when you graduate – you will automatically become a lifetime member of the University and join a global network of over 200,000 alumni in more than 200 countries.

A course at USW is more than just a qualification. Inside and outside the classroom, we help you achieve your potential professionally and personally.

You’ll be supported throughout your time here, with our friendly International Team guiding you along the way.

The teaching staff are lovely people. They were my first teachers in the UK and they helped me not only with English but also with other issues I had when I first arrived as everything was so new.
