    Will You Fit In At The University Of South Wales?

    So, you're about to come to Uni and you're nervous that you won't fit in... There's room for everyone at USW, whatever your hobbies, no matter how unique!

    You love music and want to be part of a vibrant scene?

    So do we! Our Cardiff Campus has a number of Music venues, big and small, that hold hundreds of gigs every year right on its door step, and its only a 15 minute train journey away from our Pontypridd and Newport City Campuses.

    From the small but famous Clwb Ifor Bach where bands such as The Killers and Coldplay cut their teeth to Fuel Rock Club where the busy Rock scene of the city often congregate and of course The Motorpoint arena where artists such as Katy Perry, The Script, Elbow and Beyoncé; whom did a surprise show as part of her Formation World Tour, have played.

    If you're in a band then there are a number of venues that host gigs for bands who are just starting out too, including Fuel and Clwb Ifor Bach!

    So you want an outdoors adventure? Surely USW can't be good for that?

    Well, all of our campuses are less than an hour away from the world famous Brecon Beacons National Park, our Pontypridd Campus is only 30mins away! Also Cardiff Bay has a White Water Rafting centre!

    We have a gaming society, and plenty of Pokemon and PokeStops and Gyms on campus!
