Applying to the University for EU Students

All EU applicants for Undergraduate or Postgraduate courses should provide the following documents:

You are required to write about your motivation to study with us in a personal statement of approximately 400 words. You need to demonstrate why you have decided to apply for that specific course and give strong examples of your interests and experience closely related to the subject of study.
Undergraduate students usually have to provide evidence of their proficiency in the English language. For more information, please refer to the English Language Certificates and Pre-sessional courses page.

We are aware that most EU students take their final school exams in May and June so you can make an initial application without providing your EU qualification. Successful applicants will be made a conditional offer, which will detail the results you will be required to achieve. When you receive your final results you will need to submit them to the Enquiries and Admissions Unit at the University.

For more details, please refer to the entry requirements for your country in the country pages. You should also read the Frequently Asked Questions page where you will find the answers of the questions that many EU students ask us.

In addition, students with an International Baccalaureate (IB) will also be considered for a Bachelor's programme in the University. Please "contact us":http://www.southwales.ac.uk/contact/ if you have any questions about entry requirements.

To complete your application, you need to ask your school teacher or your academic tutor at University to write a recommendation explaining why you are suitable to study with us. The recommendation should be written in English, scanned and attached to your application online.
