The University of South Wales is a popular choice amongst German students and we have been welcoming students from Germany for many years. Students have enjoyed the high standard of living but relatively low cost that South Wales offers. They also 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.

The University will be travelling to Germany during the year, join our USW International Office Facebook group to keep up to date with upcoming trips. 

We hope you find the information for German students useful. Please contact us if you have any questions or queries!
