At USW, we deliver courses that will change lives and our world for the better. This is education in practice, not just in theory. A better tomorrow is possible if we prepare for it today.
Whatever you study at USW, you get the best of south Wales to explore and experience. The capital, the coast, the mountains and valleys. We are a place of inspiring contrasts.
Cardiff is the creative centre with everything you might expect from a capital. It’s big enough to discover and small enough to make your own. Newport is alive with new ideas. A compact, well-connected, and welcoming university city with micro-breweries and independent venues sitting alongside a regenerated city centre. Pontypridd gives you space to focus. Discover friendly, authentic market towns surrounded by beautiful, wild nature and feel connected to a community.
You will make friends for life, try lots of new things and become independent. Live and study in a supportive environment where difference is valued and celebrated. Be part of a great community and always be part of the USW Family.
Gain the skills you need in environments that recreate the workplace. Our on-campus aircraft hangar, hospital ward, scenes of crimes house, recording studios and international-standard sports facilities are just a few examples of our approach. Being hands-on is the head-start you need. Practical skills, industry partners and work placements are central to our courses. We work with employers across all sectors to link students with placement and graduate opportunities.
At USW you can begin your career before you even graduate. Put theory into practice and learn from workplace experience. Plus our support continues after you graduate, including personal careers advice, application support and graduate job alerts.
