The University of South Wales offers a range of postgraduate degrees, from business and engineering to health and psychology. Our postgraduate qualifications are available at different levels, from postgraduate certificates and masters to PhDs.
Many of our courses have accreditation from professional, statutory or regulatory bodies. This allows you to gain a qualification recognised in your profession, such as an ACCA or LPC.
Many of our lecturers are at the forefront of their field, producing world-leading research and contributing to advances within their area of expertise. Half our research is rated as either world-leading or internationally excellent (REF2014), which ensures our programmes reflect the latest thinking and advances.
At the University, many of our students fit their studies around work and family commitments. We take a realistic approach to learning, with many taught courses having part-time study options and distance learning available.
USW Careers offers valuable guidance on your future and choice of qualification. The service works hard to ensure you take advantage of every opportunity available to make your CV stand out. We run employer-led events, including employability clinics and networking opportunities, and can even help you set up your own business.
We care about our students, and provide support from our Disability Service to our confidential Wellbeing Service. There is plenty of learning support on offer for those returning to learning, as well as a library on each campus and many resources and services available.
