Hong Kong


Thinking of studying here in the UK? At University of South Wales, we welcome students from countries across the world, including Hong Kong. 

The University of South Wales has three vibrant campuses in and around the capital city of Wales, Cardiff. Across our campuses, we offer more than 580 degrees in many subject areas from Foundation Year to PhD level. 

At USW, employability is at the heart of everything we do

We seek to ensure students will be ready to start a successful career as soon as they graduate. We’ve even made employability part of the curriculum, with teaching informed by what happens in the real world, to equip students with the skills they will need for the workplace. 

Most of our undergraduate degrees are accredited by professional bodies and 95% of our graduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduation (DLHE 2016/17).

Meet us in Hong Kong

We understand that choosing to study abroad is a big decision, and one that requires a lot of research and consideration. To help you prepare, our International Recruitment Officer visits Hong Kong at multiple times throughout the year to meet with you; this includes when both the HKDSE results and A Level results are released.

Join our USW International Office Facebook group to keep up to date with upcoming trips.
