The University of South Wales is a popular choice amongst Tanzanian students and we have been visiting Tanzania and welcoming students from the country to our campuses for many years. 

Self-financing students from Tanzania studying at undergraduate level are also able to take advantage of our guaranteed Chancellor’s International Development Scholarships of £2,500 per year!

Students from Tanzania appreciate 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 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 Tanzanian students in this section of the website useful. Please contact us if you have any questions or queries!
