The University of South Wales (USW) was formed in April 2013 by the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport. As one of Britain’s most exciting new universities and a major player in higher education, the University is among the top 10 campus universities in the UK by student number and attracts a cosmopolitan mix of students from 120 countries. With over 30,000 students across five campuses, it was rated top for student support in the Times Higher Education Awards 2012. We have campuses at Treforest and Glyntaff (both located just 12 miles north of Cardiff), Caerleon and Newport, as well as in the heart of Cardiff — the capital city of Wales. USW is also an integral part of The South Wales Group, comprising the University of South Wales, Merthyr Tydfil College and the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. The Guardian Higher Education Award has recognised our UHOVI project as the UK’s leading initiative in widening participation.
