The University of South Wales was created in April 2013 after a merger between the University of Wales, Newport and the University of Glamorgan. The University is one of Britain’s most exciting new universities and a major player in higher education. One of the top ten campus universities in the UK by student number, it attracts a cosmopolitan mix of students from 122 countries and all backgrounds.
The University’s main campus was founded in 1913 as a School of Mines while parts of the Institution’s Newport campus date back to the creation of a mechanics institute in 1841. The Institution gained University status in 1992.
The University has five campuses across the South Wales region including new state-of-the-art campuses in Cardiff and Newport city centres. Rail and roads links are excellent across all campuses.
