About University of South Wales

The University of South Wales is one of the largest universities in the UK. A course here is more than just a degree. Inside and outside the classroom, we help you achieve your potential professionally and personally.

Work experience and employability are built in to all our courses, and teaching is informed by what happens in the real world, so our students gain essential skills for the workplace. It’s an approach that works – 94% of our graduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduation (HESA Performance Indicator for Employment of Leavers 2013–14).
