USW Rugby

USW Rugby

The University of South Wales has a strong pedigree for rugby. We currently have two degrees, a Foundation Degree and a BSc, both in collaboration with the Welsh Rugby Union, which have produced alumni now working across the world. 

Students will benefit from studying in our world class facilities, including a 12-platform strength and conditioning suite and an indoor hybrid pitch built to World Rugby’s highest standard. Students also have access to a range of professional rugby support staff to help them develop their maximum potential. The staff are all level 3 and 4 coaches, World Rugby Coach Educators and Trainers, NSCA/UKSCA Strength & Conditioners and World Cup International Performance Analysts. All our staff and coaches are professionals and are all currently active in the Welsh Premiership and have roles with international teams.

We go the extra mile
