International Welcome Week

Courses Popular with Students from Sri Lanka

Students from Sri Lanka

Every year, we welcome students from across the globe, we even have over 400 Sri Lankan students studying across our campuses. For many of our Sri Lankan students, South Wales has become their home away from home.

At USW Sri Lankan 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. Sri Lankan students have highlighted the high standard of education, the beautiful scenery and range of campus facilities as their highlights from their time with us in the UK.

Hear from our past and present students, who have studied courses ranging from Civil Engineering, to Artificial Intelligence, and Cyber Security.
