Welcome

Number of Students

  • Total student population: 33,584
  • EU student population: 1,030
  • There are currently 67 Polish students studying at the University of South Wales

Wales offers students a high standard of living but with a relatively low cost of living. Students also benefit from the reduced fees that the Welsh Government offers to student coming from the EU.

South Wales is home to a large Polish community and there are many Polish shops in and around Cardiff where you can find all your home comforts. Our students enjoy the community feel of each of our campuses and the opportunity to experience UK life whilst studying in a safe, secure and supportive environment.

We have been welcoming students from Poland to the University for some years and have developed excellent support services for you, including: an airport pick up, academic support services, career guidance and free in-sessional English courses.

The University will be travelling to Poland during the year, join our USW International Office Facebook group to keep up to date with upcoming trips.

We hope you find the information for Polish students useful. Please contact us if you have any questions or queries!
