The University of South Wales is a popular choice among Ugandan students and the institution has been visited by Ugandan students as well as hosting students from other countries on its campuses for many years. The University of South Wales has made some international scholarships available for Ugandan students to take advantage of.

Self-funded Ugandan students studying at undergraduate level can also take advantage of their guaranteed Chancellor’s International Development Scholarships of £2,500 per year!

Ugandan students appreciate the scholarships offered by the University and have enjoyed the high standard of living but the relatively low cost that South Wales offers.

Students enjoy the friendly, safe and welcoming environment of the University and benefit greatly from the location, surrounded by stunning countryside and impressive historical scenery, with excellent transport links and the bustle of two dynamic Welsh cities.
