The University of South Wales was formed in 2013 by the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport.
Both previous institutions were founded by leading industrialists and professionals, with some of their many previous incarnations being the The South Wales and Monmouthshire School of Mines and the Caerleon College of Education.
Now, with a University of 3,500 staff and two subsidiaries in The College Merthyr Tydfil and the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, they have come a long way. With the University of South Wales, they have created a stronger, larger University with the size and scope to rank and compete with its competitors in the major metropolitan regions of the United Kingdom.
The University of South Wales is a major player in British and global higher education. Whether you assess the employability of their graduates, the applied research of their academics, or the role they play in the economic, social and cultural renaissance of their region, the vibrant University is far more than the sum of its parts.
