We provide support to students through the entire process of getting here, from application to enrolment, onto graduation and into employment. We also offer what is possibly the most financially rewarding scholarship package available for international students, in the UK at present.  Our fees include discounted tuition fees, free airport transfer on arrival and the cost of accommodation is included for your first year of being a Glyndŵr University student.

A University of Wales qualification, issued by Glyndŵr University will open up a massive array of opportunities, all over the world.   Our Second Language Learning Centre offers pre-sessional courses, to prepare you for learning through the medium of English, as well as providing a high-standard of support during your main course.  There is a dedicated careers service:  The Careers Centre and Jobshop at Glyndŵr University not only help you find paid employment whilst you study, but can help you plan your future career, even if you are not too sure what you want it to be.

We design our degree programmes in consultation with the world-leaders in that sector, so students can be sure that their degree is relevant to what employers want.  Some courses offer placements, so valuable contacts can also be made. Our research is recognised as being of international importance.  Our research and development of surface technology is working towards a £1 billion contract for the largest telescope in the world.  It is fair to say that our vision is extraordinary!  Being so advanced a centre of research means we can feed these discoveries back into what we teach, making our teaching far more advanced than other universities.

Case Study

Name: Marina Zhadeiko

Country of origin: Russia

Course: Summer School 2010


We know that Britain is traditionally popular with foreign students. But Glyndŵr University offers foreign students not only the opportunity to study abroad but a real cosmopolitan atmosphere as well. Studying here means good-quality teaching, challenging but interesting and flexible programme, industry relevant skills and cross-cultural environment providing you with future international contacts. Staying here means excellent facilities, many friends from all over the world, unforgettable visits to many beautiful places in North Wales and England.

Educational standards vary around the world. Thus studying at Glyndŵr University has given us a chance to compare educational facilities and possibilities in Russia and in Wales. Among the differences is a wider range of accessible facilities and more modern accommodation providing the internet exit that is very helpful but not typical for hostels in Russian Universities. The spacious and homely single rooms in Snowdon Hall have everything that you need, including up-to-date facilities in the bathroom and kitchen. Russian students appreciated (found very useful) the latest equipment in automotive and electronics laboratories, an aircraft hanger and library located on University’s Wrexham campus.
