Number of Students

The University of South Wales is a popular choice amongst Saudi students and has been welcoming students from Saudi Arabia to its five campuses for many years.

Popular courses amongst Saudi students include undergraduate programmes in engineering, computing and business.

Students from Saudi Arabia have appreciated 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 appreciate 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.
