Experience South Wales

The places you study and live make a big difference to what you get out of university. It’s important to be somewhere that feels like home, but can also surprise you. South Wales offers rich experiences, with Cardiff at the heart.

With campuses in and around Cardiff, you can experience the diversity that south Wales has to offer – the buzz of the cities, the beauty of the coast, and the calm of the countryside. 

We have five campuses across three locations, but we’re one university. Every campus is open to you and whatever inspires you, you’re always welcome.

You'll have the chance to explore our campuses at Cardiff, Newport or Pontypridd, meet academic staff and current students, learn about life at USW and student money, and take part in interactive activities related to your course.  For those who can't attend an on-campus event, we run online and on-demand events.
