Number of Students

The University of South Wales is a popular choice amongst International students and we have been welcoming students from Colombia to our three campuses for many years.

Colombian students study a wide range of courses at USW including Graphic Communications and Marketing. A full list of subject areas can be found here

The University of South Wales offers generous scholarships to Colombian students who also enjoy the high standard but relatively low cost of living that South Wales offers. Students appreciate the friendly, safe and welcoming environment of the university and benefit hugely from the location as the campuses are surrounded by breathtaking scenery and impressive historical landscapes. There are also excellent transport links between campuses and to all major cities in the UK.

We hope you find the information in this section of the website useful. Please feel free to contact Joanna Scaplehorn, International Officer if you have any questions!
