The course I am studying is Eletrical and Electronic Engineering and it is a very fun course you get to test out circuits and test out theories, the food at this university is amazing as its not too expensive and there are threr places on campus to go meaning there a huge variety on offer.

I really enjoy studying here at the usw. All of the facilities are excellent. However they're are a fee things that can be improved, for example I believe that the campus shop and food court is way to expensive considering they are for students. Even simple things that are cheap in a corner shop have an extra 50p or so added to them.

All the staff were very helpful, very good facilities, my experience, for the most part, has been very enjoyable. However, not much support in terms of essay writing/one-to-one classes which I can find. Both union as well maintained, keep and host fun events.

Campus itself is okay, canteen could use some improvement as it is too small to fit all students most days. Especially earlier on in the year. The food is also overpriced. In regards to the course (Bcs hons Nursing), the tutors are very helpful and supportive of your learning. Placements are an issue for most every year. Many students don’t have placements until a week before they are due to start. There simply aren’t enough placements for the number of students in each cohort. Overall, Glamorgan is a good university but could benefit from better organisational skills in regards to timetables and placements.

Been at the university of South Wales for 2 years now and I have 3 years left but the university is awesome and the teaching staff are really good. Only thing that brings down the rating is the lack of jobs in the area and the help provided to get jobs.

The university itself is amazing. Each department has their own facilities meaning that you'll never go to use a room and not be able to. The library and union is great and the amount of technology available to use is amazing. However the café and vending machine prices are extortionate! Most avoid it to go to Tesco (5 mins away). As a café for students, you would think that the prices would be reasonable but they're really not, the café is a waste of money. You pay a lot for a coffee that tastes disgusting so most just go elsewhere and the vending machines are so over priced and faulty that only those who can't make it to a shop use them. I think this should be improved for students as charging so much is unfair and we should be given affordable eating and drinking options especially since for most, buying stuff there is the last resort

Most staff are friendly but some can be frustrating and unnecessary. The campuses are fairly standard but a little boring and there's not too much to do. I feel that the Cardiff campus of USW is a lot better funded and nicer than the pontypridd campus and I don't think this is fair.

The Cardiff campus is split into 4 sections so you don’t really get to meet other courses, the support from lecturers is incredible and would 100% recommend going here if you want real world experience for modules

Lovely building in Cardiff, really central to everything. Canteen is good with cheap meals and massive portions. Classrooms are very spacious and interesting reading materials in the library.

The university of Glamorgan (Now known as USW) is situated in a very scenic Welsh valley. The university is split into campuses (Now 4 as USW), the Trefforest campus and the Glyntaff campus. I studied at the Glyntaff campus, which is directly across the valley from the Trefforest campus. The facilities offered were good, we had access to a 24 hour library and computer rooms with all the relevant software needed for courses. The student life is good, only a short distance away from Cardiff, offerinf some of the best nightlife a uni student could wish for.

There are plenty of safe zones and societies and no one ia judged based on their race or background.

They go around and give you plenty of advice on the wellbeing. There are drop in and out services on campus.

Very good support for disabled students and grants. There is accessibility for students everywhere. However, the landscape may prove challeging being on a very steep gradient.

The University of Glamorgan (Since 2013: University of South Wales) has some very helpful staff and dedicated employess who care about the students. The location in Pontypridd, about 25 min away from Cardiff City Centre, is good for both people from commuting from Cardiff and other Valleys towns, but there are also a lot of student-focussed businesses, takeaways and shops there. I personally decided to live in Cardiff since I prefered living in a bigger city, but life in Pontypridd was definitely very affordable, as far as I heard from other students.

Lovely campus, really big with great facilities. The chiropractic course is structured really well with great lecturers and facilities for the course located just of campus- a 5 minutes walk from the side gate on campus.

A very homely atmosphere in general but not too far from Cardiff at all so if it's a big nightlife that you want you can get that too quite easily.

The staff are friendly however to my course specifically there is a lack of organisation and planning within members of staff. The Building itself is beautiful and it is easy to find room locations.

The overall university experience I had so far has been amazing. Professors are well prepared and always available if you have questions, most of the courses are very well made with tutorials and lab sessions and seminars that help you all the way through to the exam.The university library is also awesome but during the exam period I advice to go early because it’s also very busy. We have a cafe in the library and several vending machines, plus we have like 12 floors which are characterised by a colour that tells you how noise you can be, the first three floors are for group studies so you can be pretty loud while from the fourth to the sixth is middle area so you can’t talk but you can like type on your computer without worrying about the noise you’re making and then upstairs is complete silent zone. That’s great I think. We also have a GP just in front of the library which is a very good position in my opinion. During the whole semester is pretty busy but if you call in the morning you’ll sure have an appointment with a doctor, also they’re usually on time.

Personally, I think our campus might not look like the most 'elite-looking' university but pretty much everything any students need is there. I'm not a big fan of libraries but ours is pretty decent. There is a lot of room for improvement but it's not bad.
