We have been welcoming students from Romania to our campuses for many years. All our students enjoy the community feel of each of our campuses and the opportunity to experience UK life whilst studying in a safe, secure and supportive environment.

Wales offers a relatively low cost of living with good job opportunities. These are just some of the reasons why the city of Cardiff has been voted as one of the best cities in the UK for young people.

The University will be travelling to Romania during the year, join our USW International Office Facebook group to keep up to date with upcoming trips.

We hope you find the information useful. Please contact us if you have any questions or queries!
