The University of South Wales has been welcoming students from Greece for many years and it is a popular choice amongst Greek students, who enjoy the high standard of living at relatively low cost that South Wales offers.

Our Greek community is increasing year on year and our students have set up the USW Hellenic and Cypriot Society Facebook group.

We offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses in a range of areas; popular choices amongst our Greek students are Law, Business Management, Engineering, Computer Science, Computer games development, Psychology, Forensic Science, Media and Design.

The University will be travelling to Greece during the year, join our USW International Office Facebook group to keep up to date with upcoming trips. You can also visit our Hellenic & Cypriot Society at USW if you wish to get in touch with our current students.

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

Our Undergraduate and Postgraduate EU Scholarship scheme offers a scholarship on the international tuition fees for EU students joining us in academic year 2024/2025. The scholarship awarded will ensure that the tuition fees paid do not exceed the fee currently paid by UK students.

You will be considered for a scholarship automatically when we receive your application to study. You do not need to make a separate scholarship application. You will receive confirmation of a scholarship with your offer letter and it applies to all years of study.

EU students who graduate from USW in 2023 with an undergraduate degree and are no longer eligible for home fees but could be eligible for a Master's Progression Fee Discount of £6,000.
