We will be receiving this information from UCAS but if you have these or if your school is able to supply them, then please forward them to admissions@southwales.ac.uk for us to consider.

We are advising all applicants not to make any drastic decisions yet and make sure you speak to us about your options. 


Online Open Days

We are running Clearing online open days where you can chat to academics and students for insights not just into USW, but also on a range of courses you may not have even considered yet, plus helpful guidance on finance, accommodation and student life. 

Live Events

Throughout August, we are running live subject-specific events. These events will be hosted by our academic staff, many of whom are at the forefront of their field. If you’ve missed an event on your chosen subject, don’t worry, you can still access recordings of each event.
