About Glyndwr University

Wrexham Glyndŵr University is a young, vibrant institution at the heart of the north east Wales community; striving to be student-focused in all web do, market-led, of international significance and open to everyone. The college takes a personalised approach to teaching so the students receive help and support throughout their course, whilst having the opportunity to link with industry partners to help them get real-world experience of their areas of interest.

Starting out with just the Wrexham campus in 2008, the university now has campuses in St Asaph and Northop in North Wales, and in Kingston-upon-Thames in London. More than 9,000 students study in these campuses and more than 85% of these are undergraduate students, with nearly 1500 making up the postgraduate student population.
