Egypt

Welcome

The University of South Wales is very pleased to welcome students from Egypt.

Popular courses amongst Egyptian students are our courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level in business and management and engineering.

Students from Egypt appreciate the scholarships offered by the University and have enjoyed the high standard of living but relatively low cost of living that South Wales offers. Students enjoy the friendly, safe and welcoming environment of the University and benefit hugely from the location – surrounded by breathtaking scenery and impressive historical landscapes, boasting excellent transport links and the buzz of two dynamic Welsh cities.

We hope you find the information for students from Egypt in this section of the website useful. Please contact us if you have any questions or queries!
