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

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

Students from Libya 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. Cardiff in particular is a popular city for students from all over the Middle East and North Africa and is a home away from home for our students. There is even a Libyan school in Cardiff!
