- The creed of a true saint is to make the best of life, and to make the most of it. Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Graduate from the University of South Wales
The University of South Wales (USW) is a major player in UK higher education - one of the UK's ten biggest campus universities by student number. It was formed in 2013 from the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport.
The University competes equally for students and reputation with the UK’s major regional universities. It helps its region compete head to head for investment and growth with major city regions such as Bristol, Manchester, London and Tyneside.
When it comes to working with industry, USW is the University of Choice for business.
Its courses are designed to increase the skills and employability of its students.
It works with employer partners to make sure that its students get all the experience and advice that they need.
Its partnership with employers makes the University of South Wales a major contributor to the success of its graduates and their employers.
A fundamental test for students and their families considering university is a simple question: am I likely to get a job at the end of it?
At the University of South Wales, its graduates go straight to work for major employers, from British Airways, General Electric, Sony and the BBC to local authorities.
Students prepare for the world of work in the latest simulation environments, giving them real advantage over students taught through purely theoretical classroom studies. Its simulated environments include a courtroom, forensic scene of crime house, film, fashion and music studios, an aerospace centre with two aircraft hangars and sporting facilities which have been endorsed by world champions.
