Institution Profile:

The University of South Wales (USW) is the largest university in Wales. With campuses in Pontypridd, Cardiff and Newport, students can enjoy city life, stunning beaches and breath-taking countryside.

Cardiff Campus

Our Cardiff Campus is based in the heart of the city. It is home to creative industries students and offers endless opportunities. Cardiff is a major centre for media and TV production in the UK. The campus is overflowing with specialist facilities, study spaces, a library and Students’ Union.

Newport Campus

Newport Campus is one of the university’s most iconic buildings. With Friars Walk shopping centre right opposite and Halls of Residence a few minutes’ walk away, it couldn’t be in a better location. Many of our subjects are based here, including counselling, cyber security, teaching and social work.

Pontypridd Campus

USW Pontypridd is our largest campus and made up of Treforest and Glyntaff. Surrounded by green open spaces, students love the community atmosphere. Students will find everything they need on campus, their classes, accommodation, library, sport centre, Students’ Union and cafes. The campus is home to many subjects, from business and law, to engineering, health and sport.

Student Support

We offer an outstanding network of support and advice for our students. Our Advice Zones, based on all campuses, are easily accessible and a first point of contact for any issues. Students will be connected to a wealth of services, including wellbeing, disability, money advice, health clinics, chaplaincy and USW Careers.

USW Careers prepares students for success. Employability is part of our curriculum, and teaching is informed by real-world practical experience. We help with all stages of the job hunt, from CVs and interview skills to job applications. Students can even search live job vacancies, work placements, and attend career workshops and networking events.

The university works with employers across all industry sectors. We link students with opportunities and help their CV stand out. Our students take part in our Grad Edge Award, and we can even support them to develop business ideas through Student Enterprise.

Our courses ensure students get the practical experience to prepare them for the workplace. Students gain essential skills by using industry-standard equipment, from our Moot Courtroom and Clinical Simulation Centre, to Film & TV School Wales, Crime Scene Facilities and our Sport Park.

The recent extension to USW Cardiff includes dance and drama spaces, design and photographic studios, fashion facilities and creative spaces on all floors for collaborative working.

With a library on each campus, students can access a range of services and resources. There are different types of study spaces, from social to silent, as well as access to books, journals, PCs and Wi-Fi.

For sport enthusiasts, there are over 65 teams that compete in the BUCS league, ranging from tennis and mountain biking, to golf, surfing and rugby. USW Sport has some of the most impressive facilities in the UK. USW Sport Park is one of the best university sport coaching and training venues in the country.

Virtual Open Days

Students can register for an online open day at the University of South Wales. There are no deadlines, and no set times. Prospective students can access welcome talks, campus tours, and helpful finance and accommodation talks at their leisure.
