Nigeria

Welcome

The University of South Wales has always been a popular choice amongst Nigerian students and we have been welcoming students from Nigeria to our campuses for many years!

The University is proud to offer a friendly, safe and welcoming environment that all of our students can enjoy and is easily reached with excellent transport links. We benefit hugely from the location – surrounded by breath-taking scenery and impressive historical landscapes, and the buzz of two dynamic Welsh cities on our doorstop. Both Cardiff and Newport offer part-time employment opportunities, fantastic shopping facilities and a vibrant nightlife.

The University has appointed an In-Country representative, Mr Edward Bassey who is available to assist with all applications. We are happy to welcome direct applications online via our Application page. Once you have launched an application we will ask our representative to contact you directly to assist you completing the application stage and then to subsequently assist you in launching your VISA application.
