The University of Glamorgan boasts three modern campuses, two in Treforest near the town of Pontypridd and a brand new, state-of-the-art facility in the heart of Cardiff city centre. Glamorgan is committed to innovation in teaching and learning, and to equipping students with the skills they will need for their chosen careers. The university attracts more than 22,000 students across its campuses and is known for its friendly community atmosphere. Impressively, there has been more than a 30% increase in applications over the last two years. Glamorgan’s status as one of Wales’s research-active universities was confirmed by its excellent results for the quality of its research in the 2008 research assessment exercise.

Latest developments include £18m-worth of new and refurbished accommodation blocks; a major expansion for health, sport and science students at the Glyntaff campus; world-class facilities at Glamorgan Sport Park; and a new £5.2m student union complex. This is in addition to a new home for the Law School in the listed Ty Crawshay building. An aircraft hangar has been constructed as an extension to the Faculty of Advanced Technology’s building, allowing real aircraft to be used on aircraft maintenance courses.
