Taiwan

Welcome

Welcome to the University of South Wales! As one of the largest universities in the UK we are proud of our internationally diverse student body. We have been welcoming students from Taiwan to the University for many years and have developed excellent support services for you.

Here at the University Taiwanese 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. We have found that our Taiwanese students really make the effort to integrate into life here at the University which benefits both them and the experience of all our students.

We hope you find the information provided on these web pages useful. If you have any questions please get in touch!
