Our students enjoy the high standard of living but relatively low cost of living that South Wales offers. The university has a friendly, safe and welcoming environment and benefits hugely from the location – surrounded by breath-taking scenery and impressive historical landscapes, boasting excellent transport links and the buzz of two dynamic Welsh cities.

South Wales has long been welcoming Slovakians to the region. With a growing community there is now a Slovakian Consulate. There are also several delicatessens, shops and restaurants specialising Slovak foods.

The university offers students excellent support services which include: academic support, career guidance, International Welcome Programme and arrival services (airport pick up from Cardiff International Airport). EU students also benefit from the reduced fees that the Welsh Government offers through the Welsh Tuition Fee Grant.

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