About

With more than 30,000 students, the University of South Wales (USW) is a significant player in UK higher education – one of the UK’s ten most prominent campus institutions by student number. It was formed on 11 April 2013 from the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport.

Spread over its campuses in Cardiff, Pontypridd, and Newport, there are four faculties: Business and Society; Computing; Engineering and Science; Creative Industries; and Life Sciences and Education.

USW prides itself on the high employment rates of its graduates, and students are allowed to prepare for the working world with simulation environments, such as a courtroom, forensic scene of a crime house, film, fashion, and music studios, and an aerospace centre with two aircraft hangars.
