Welcome


The University of South Wales is a popular choice amongst International students and we have been welcoming students from Brazil to our three campuses for many years.

Brazilian students study a wide range of courses at USW including Engineering, Photography, Animation, Midwifery and Geology. 

The University of South Wales offers generous scholarships to Brazilian students who also enjoy the high standard but relatively low cost of living that South Wales offers. Students appreciate the friendly, safe and welcoming environment of the university and benefit hugely from the location as the campuses are surrounded by breathtaking scenery and impressive historical landscapes. There are also excellent transport links between campuses and to all major cities in the UK.
