Turkey

Welcome

The University of South Wales is a popular choice amongst International students and we have been welcoming students from Turkey to our three campuses for many years.

Students enjoy the friendly, safe and welcoming environment of the university and benefit hugely from the location as the campuses are surrounded by breathtaking scenery and impressive historical landscapes. There are also excellent transport links between campuses and to all major cities in the UK.

Turkish students study a wide range of courses. A full list of subject areas can be found here.

The University of South Wales offers generous scholarships to Turkish students who also enjoy the high standard but relatively low cost of living that South Wales offers. At undergraduate level, Turkish students are also able to take advantage of the Chancellor’s International Development Scholarship of £2,500 per year.
