University for Careers

A fundamental test for students and their families considering university is a simple question: am I likely to get a job at the end of it?

At the University of South Wales, our graduates go straight to work for major employers, from British Airways, General Electric, Sony and the BBC to local authorities and the NHS.

We have a strong record of employability, with 95%* of our graduates in work of further study 6 months after completing their courses. Our careers team works with over 2500 local and national partners giving students the opportunities to showcase their talents.

Students prepare for the world of work in the latest simulation environments, giving them real advantage over students taught through purely theoretical classroom studies. Our simulated environments include a courtroom, forensic scene of crime house, film, fashion and music studios, an aerospace centre with two aircraft hangars and sporting facilities which have been endorsed by world champions.
