The University of South Wales provides diverse options to their students. The university believes through knowledge and education it can change the lives of people. This university wants to add value to small communities, economy, and most fundamentally, to the lives of those who study there. University of South Wales holds the bronze Athena SWAN award for its work in gender equality. The college was formerly known as  Monmouthshire Training College established in 1914 to train male students as teachers. In 1962 Caerleon College admitted female students, and a rapid expansion followed, with numbers going from 140 to 750. Later the school was taken over by Glamorgan County Council during the Depression, and became Glamorgan Technical College in 1949, reflecting its expanding portfolio, and was later renamed the Glamorgan College of Technology in 1958. By this time, the institution had expanded to offer a range of full-time, sandwich and part-time courses in science, technology and commerce, to which it added the first ever Welsh for Adults course in 1967.
In April 2013, the University of South Wales was formed following a merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport, led by Vice-Chancellor, Professor Julie Lydon and Chancellor, former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. The university now offers over 500 courses, and hosts students from more than 120 countries.
