University of South Wales

Branch Officer: Catrin Evans

The University of South Wales is the largest university in Wales, with campuses in Cardiff, Newport and Pontypridd. These unique settings mean that you can enjoy all that the region has to offer; the life and culture of the capital city, spectacular beaches and enchanting countryside.

The Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol continues to go from strength to strength at the University of South Wales, and the branch works hard to give student members opportunities to meet and collaborate.

The University of South Wales branch organises a series of social events throughout the academic year in collaboration with the Welsh language society, the ‘GymGym’. We also run a number of joint activities with other universities in the area, e.g. a gig was held during Freshers’ Week for Coleg members in the south-east, a great opportunity for the capital city’s Welsh-speaking students to come together to socialise.

A programme of events relating to individual subject areas is also arranged. The branch will build on the success of previous events and continue to provide unique opportunities for our students, for example the Media Production students’ visit to the BAFTA Cymru awards, and the Police Sciences and Criminology students’ opportunity to quiz the Commissioner of South Wales Police.

More formal meetings are also held to discuss the University’s Welsh medium academic developments. Welsh medium education provision at the University of South Wales is mainly in Education, Business, Media Production, Music, Drama and Police Sciences, with lower level developments in a number of other subjects.

If you decide to come and study at the University of South Wales, look out for the Coleg’s Branch offices on the Treforest and Caerleon campuses, or e-mail decymru@colegcymraeg.ac.uk and follow @CangenDeCymru on Twitter.

We look forward to welcoming you here and to including you in the Branch’s activities.

Student Opinion

“The experiences I’ve had so far in BA Media Production at the University of South Wales have been amazing. I had the opportunity to do some work experience in Boom Plant’s studio as a researcher for the popular children's show Cyw, to collaborate and discuss my work with industry professionals, and to go to the BAFTA Cymru awards at Wales Millennium Centre. We are part of mainstream media events here in South Wales.”
