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!
