The University of Glamorgan (Welsh: Prifysgol Morgannwg) is a university based in Pontypridd, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Wales with campuses in Trefforest, Glyntaff, Merthyr Tydfil, Tyn y Wern and Cardiff. It comprises seven departments and faculties.
Based on a modern, compact campus in Treforest, near the busy market town of Pontypridd, the university is proud to nestle at the heart of the historic south Wales valleys, a region famed for innovation.
Treforest was once a mining village that played its part in south Wales’ industrial economic boom of the 19th century. Now Glamorgan forges the academic power that drives today’s modern economy. Surrounded by rolling hills, you are greeted by images of classic Wales – tranquil and beautiful, with easy access to the Brecon Beacons mountain range and opportunities for horse riding, canoeing, rock climbing, waterskiing and more.
