The high standard of living and relatively low cost of living makes Wales an attractive study destination for students. All our campuses are conveniently located in an around Cardiff which has been voted as one of the best cities in the UK for young people.

Our Estonian students enjoy exploring the beautiful Welsh countryside, the excellent shopping in Cardiff, visiting castles (there are 641 castles in Wales!), evenings out in Cardiff Bay and frequenting the many festivals and events organised in and around the city of Cardiff. You can read more about what our students think of studying here by reading their student profiles.

The University will be travelling to Estonia throughout the year, join our USW International Office Facebook group to keep up to date with upcoming trips. These trips give you an opportunity to meet with a university representative.
