Welcome

The University of South Wales is a popular choice amongst Nepalese students and we have been welcoming students from Nepal to its campuses for many years.

Students enjoy the high standard of living but relatively low cost of living that South Wales offers.

We understand that employability is important to you and you will benefit from live projects with industry, work placements and guest lecturers from industry on a selection of our courses.
We hope you find the information for Nepalese students useful.

Please contact us if you have any questions or queries!
