About University of South Wales

The University of South Wales is a university in South Wales, United Kingdom. It was formed on 11 April 2013 from the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport. The university can trace its roots to the founding of the Newport Mechanics Institute in 1841. With more than 31,000 students from 122 countries, the university is the 6th largest university in the UK and the largest in Wales.

The name for the university was chosen following a research exercise amongst interested parties and announced in December 2012 by the prospective vice-chancellor of the university, Julie Lydon. The foundation of the new university dates back to 1841 when the Newport Mechanics Institute was formed, which later become the University of Wales, Newport. In 1913 South Wales and Monmouthshire school of mines was formed which in 1992 gained the status of University of Glamorgan.
