There are few careers that are as rewarding, or that allow you to work with such a variety of people. Our Nursing courses will give you the specialist skills, education and training to prepare you for the workplace.
You will learn in our impressive health facilities. Our Clinical Simulation Centre replicates clinical environments for education and training. These include two, four-bedded bays to simulate a hospital setting, dedicated paediatric and maternity facilities, including a special care baby unit, an intensive care environment and an emergency department with a fully equipped ambulance simulator.
Funding is available for healthcare students on NHS funded courses in Wales. Find out more here.

The University prides itself on the support it gives to students on its nursing degrees, both practically and emotionally. Every student has a personal tutor and a module supervisor. During clinical placements students are fully supported by a qualified nurse who acts as a ‘mentor’.
Our nursing courses cover most aspects of healthcare professions. From becoming a registered nurse to tailoring your career into a specific healthcare profession, USW can help you to take the next step. You can specialise in a certain field, develop leadership and management skills and even study the education around healthcare theories.
It’s the stuff of nightmares, but, for professionals dealing with the aftermath of a major road accident, it’s an all-too-regular part of everyday life.
Knowing what to do after such an event can be the difference between life and death.
That’s why the School of Care Sciences hold Blue Light Exercises at its Glyntaff Campus so student nurses can work together with other emergency service personnel to manage the aftermath of a mock-up road accident.
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.
Join us at an open day or live event and discover the opportunities waiting for you at the University of South Wales.
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. There's plenty of ways to discover what USW is all about.
