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!

Our Undergraduate and Postgraduate EU Scholarship scheme offers a scholarship on the international tuition fees for EU students joining us in academic year 2024/2025. The scholarship awarded will ensure that the tuition fees paid do not exceed the fee currently paid by UK students.

You will be considered for a scholarship automatically when we receive your application to study. You do not need to make a separate scholarship application. You will receive confirmation of a scholarship with your offer letter and it applies to all years of study.

EU students who graduate from USW in 2023 with an undergraduate degree and are no longer eligible for home fees, and the home post graduate alumni discount could be eligible for a Master’s Progression Fee Discount of £6,000.
