Choosing which university to attend is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. After all, it is the place you will spend arguably the most important years of your life. Let me make the decision a little easier for you.

Here at Glyndŵr University, we blend the importance of academia with a strong sense of community. We are student-centred, market led, internationally significant and open to all.

This focus has taken us to a record number of students in 2013/14 and we are determined to provide everyone joining the Glyndŵr family with the best experience possible, not just through education but socially and culturally, with your health and wellbeing always in mind.

Here at Glyndŵr University we are proud of our enterprising spirit. This spirit impacts on everything we do, from our name - inspired by Welsh hero Owain Glyndŵr - right through to our everyday actions.

This doesn’t just mean turning our graduates into the next great entrepreneur, although we do have a strong record of providing excellent support for those wanting to start their own businesses.

To us it means that we work hard to keep our courses up to date and industry relevant by building partnerships with national and international companies; we are creative in our thinking, often introducing courses which are the first of their kind in the UK; and we are sustainable and bold in how we operate.

We believe in people’s potential and opening up university life to all, whether it’s those visiting the campus to use our facilities or deciding to study here.

We don’t believe that there should be barriers to people fulfilling their potential, and past and current students consistently praise our staff for the help and support offered to them throughout their courses.

If you want a university that cares, that puts your studies and future at the top of its agenda, the search is over.

I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to come to one of our open days to see for yourself. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Glyndŵr – the World’s Local University.
