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

Students from Ghana have enjoyed the high standard of living but relatively low cost of living that South Wales offers - Cardiff is the most affordable city in the UK for students! (Natwest Student Index 2022). 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.
