University of South Wales
"Mae gowannen!" is they say in Wales. The part of the University of South Wales which was formerly the University of Glamorgan, is located just outside the Welsh capital of Cardiff.
For us it is about fulfilling dreams - your dreams. Therefore, we chose to partner up with the University of South Wales, so you could take two years at Noroff, and make that into a Bachelor's degree at this university. And we will happily tell you why we chose the University of South Wales.
Over the years, the University of Glamorgan has received many awards and honors. 2008 was no exception; they were then nominated for the prestigious The Times University of the Year Award. In recent years they have invested nearly 700 million NOK in buildings and other facilities to provide better learning conditions. Headquarters, the Atrium, has cost 420 million NOK and houses 2,000 students, a theater, television studie, radio and film productions, animation and computer labs. All technical equipment is of the highest standard.
With its 20,000 students, the university has a strong presence in the local community. Here you will find many bars, cafés and clubs. The nightlife is famous. Students call it Glamlife.
When you arrive at the university, you will have a tutor who lives in the area. The tutor will help you get settled in. If you are in need of guidance there is of course a special section with student tutors ready to help you.
Cardiff is the capital of Wales. Many associate Cardiff with coal. Today, there is a state of the art city where The Millennium Stadium is perhaps the most famous building. The annual Cardiff Festival claims that they are the UK's largest outdoor festival. The university is located just outside the city center and thanks to a very wide range of public transport options, you are never far away from where you want to go.
