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

Popular courses amongst Ghanaian students are our postgraduate courses in business and management, engineering, safety and health and environmental management.

Students from Ghana appreciate the scholarships offered by the University and have enjoyed the high standard of living but relatively low cost of living that South Wales offers. Students enjoy the friendly, safe and welcoming environment of the University and benefit hugely from the location – surrounded by breathtaking scenery and impressive historical landscapes, boasting excellent transport links and the buzz of two dynamic Welsh cities.

We hope you find the information for students from Ghana in this section of the website useful. Please contact us if you have any questions or queries!
