The University of South Wales is a popular choice amongst Filipino students and has been welcoming students from the Philippines to its three campuses for many years.

Popular courses amongst Filipino students are MSc Professional Practice, MSc Renewable Energy and Resource Management and BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance.

Students from the Philippines 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.
