Here at the University of South Wales we always put our students first. We offer a friendly and academically challenging environment with an excellent reputation for teaching quality, state-of-the-art study facilities and supportive staff.

Self-financing students from Zambia studying at undergraduate level are able to take advantage of our guaranteed Chancellor’s International Development Scholarships of £2,500 per year!
Students from Zambia 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 Zambian students in this section of the website useful. Please contact us if you have any questions or queries!
