International and EU students from more than 120 countries study at the University of South Wales each year and we have a vibrant Indian community on campus. 

We are a popular choice with Indian students as there is a high standard of living and Cardiff is one of the most cost-effective cities in the UK with a large Indian community and a good selection of Indian restaurants and Gurdwaras. Cardiff is also home to the India Centre which organises cultural events through the year.
