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

Popular courses amongst Singaporean students are the BA (Hons) Business with Human Resource Management top-up and the MBA and the Master of Chiropractic

Students from Singapore 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.
