Qatar

Welcome

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

Popular courses amongst Qatari students include undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in business, engineering and computing.

Students from Qatar 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 Qatari students in this section of the website useful. Please contact us if you have any questions or queries!
