Student life

With a huge variety of clubs, societies and sports to be a part of, the University of South Wales encourages students to get involved in the community as much as possible. The Student Union manages over 50 clubs itself and an advice and support service independently aids students in times of need. All the university campuses are close to town centres and therefore benefit from excellent nightlife and social opportunities.
