Oman

Welcome

The University of South Wales is a popular choice amongst Omani students and has been welcoming students from Oman to its five campuses for many years.

Popular courses amongst Omani students are the MBA (including associated pathway options) and Masters degrees in engineering, nursing and education.

Students from Oman have appreciated the scholarships offered by the University and have enjoyed the high standard of living but relatively low cost of living that South Wales offers. Students appreciate the friendly, safe and welcoming environment of the university and benefit hugely from the location – surrounded by breathtaking scenery and impressive historical landscapes, boasting excellent transport links and the buzz of two dynamic Welsh cities.

We hope you find the information for Omani students in this section of the website useful. Please contact us if you have any questions or queries!
