University of South Wales

Choose to study in the city, countryside or coast. The University of South Wales (USW) has a unique offering across a range of specialist subjects, providing hands-on, industry-linked courses for a real-world experience.

USW boasts a wealth of state-of-the-art facilities for hands-on learning, including a moot court and a legal practice library, as well as purpose-built psychology and science labs. The university also provides opportunities for real-world experiences through placements and internships, including a 10-week internship for business students and the opportunity for our criminology students to impact real-world crime cases through our innocence and cold case projects.

For all the creative students out there, the university’s faculty of creative industries is based in Cardiff, the Welsh hub of creativity, allowing strong industry links with major film and TV industry employers, including Bad Wolf (the production company behind His Dark Materials). The campus boasts impressive music, design and photography studios. The fashion facilities replicate that of an industry environment with trade sewing machines, 3D printing and many creative spaces where students can work and collaborate.

The university is also known for its world-class sporting facilities, including 11 pitches, a 3G rubber crumb floodlit football pitch, a new specialist centre for strength and conditioning plus a full-sized indoor football pitch - the only one in Wales and one of only five in the UK.

The university’s aerospace engineering courses provide amazing opportunities for future careers. With site visits, practitioner mentoring and industrial placements, students have a hands-on approach from the start. As the only university in the UK to incorporate the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) into its aerospace degrees, students undertaking this subject benefit from having their course recognised by aviation law. Students who complete the EASA training can then apply for a full EASA Part 66, which would usually take five years to acquire. This degree allows students to undertake training within industry-level facilities all over the world.
