South Africa

Welcome

Visit to South Africa

Regional Manager (Africa) Joe Paley will be visiting Johannesburg between 11-12 November to speak with students looking to study in the UK. 

If you are thinking of studying overseas, please do send Joe an email at: joe.paley1@southwales.ac.uk


Here at the University of South Wales we always put our students first. We offer a friendly and academically challenging environment with an excellent reputation for teaching quality, state-of-the-art study facilities and supportive staff.

Aeronautical Engineering is a popular subject amongst South African students. 

Students from South Africa have enjoyed the high standard of living but relatively low cost of living that South Wales offers. Students enjoy 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 students from South Africa in this section of the website useful. Please contact us if you have any questions or queries!
