University of South Wales (Welsh: Prifysgol De Cymru) is a university in South Wales, United Kingdom. It was formed on 11 April 2013 from the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport. The university can trace its roots to the founding of the Newport Mechanics Institute in 1841. With more than 31,000 students from 122 countries, the university is the 6th largest university in the UK and the largest in Wales.
