University of South Wales

The University of South Wales was formed in 2013 by the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport.

Both previous institutions were founded by leading industrialists and professionals, with some of their many previous incarnations being the The South Wales and Monmouthshire School of Mines and the Caerleon College of Education.

Now the University has a staff of 3,500 and two subsidiaries in The College Merthyr Tydfil and the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.
