Wrexham Glyndwr


Wrexham Glynd��r University started in 2008 so we’re still one of the youngest universities in the UK.

It is a vibrant, friendly place where each student’s learning and future is given personal attention.

Our name comes from Welsh scholar and hero Owain Glynd��r and we aim to champion some of the same philosophies as him.

We are proud to name our university after a man who cherished learning, loved his country, embraced an international outlook, and constantly demonstrated an inspiring and enterprising approach to life.

His spirit lies at the heart of Wrexham Glynd��r University where we set out to be bold, enterprising and open to all in everything that we do.

We’ve been delivering education at our main Wrexham campus since 1887, when we were known as the Wrexham School of Science and Art. We first started offering degrees in 1924 but we've come a long way since then.

Today, industry-led courses are at the heart of our offering. We pride ourselves on our links with leading local and regional employers, such as Airbus, Kellogg’s, JCB and the BBC.  Their knowledge and expertise is fed back into our courses, ensuring that out students are provided with only the most relevant skills for their future career.  

We are extremely proud of the opportunities which we provide for those from non-traditional backgrounds to enter higher education. More than half of our students study part-time and we are one of the UK’s leading universities for supporting students from lower socio-economic backgrounds through university thanks to our comprehensive Widening Access programme in the local community. The university is also the first HE institution in North Wales to become a Stonewall Diversity Champion.

A vibrant urban atmosphere, Welsh culture, a hub for arts, entertainment, eating out and shopping areas packed with familiar names from the high street - Wrexham has plenty to offer you. Wrexham has developed significantly over the last few years with investment in a new shopping centre, cinema, ten-pin bowling alley and restaurants. For going out with friends there are plenty of options for enjoying the nightlife from traditional pubs through to clubs and restaurants to suit all tastes. If live music is your thing there are a number of venues which feature everything from local bands to well-known names and comedians. Wrexham live music venue Central Station has been named "Wales' leading live music venue" in The Independent and Kerrang.

Taking a wander in to the surrounding regions and you will soon find yourself spoilt for choice for things to see and do. In nearby Llangollen there is an annual fringe festival and a world-renowned international musical Eisteddfod. The town of Mold offers theatre performances and for more well known names a trip to Llandudno will give you everything from concerts to West End musicals. If you like watching sport Wrexham Football Club and North Wales Crusaders Rugby League play next door to the main campus at the Wrexham Glyndwr University Racecourse Stadium. For swimming Waterworld in the centre of the town provides a 25 metre, 6 lane pool with a 65 metre waterslide and nearby Deeside Leisure Centre is also home to an Olympic sized ice rink where curling is played.

Studying in Wrexham will also put you a stone’s throw away from spectacular countryside, coastal resorts and the beautiful Welsh mountains, ideal for walking, cycling, mountain biking, rock climbing, white water rafting or horse riding. The towns and cities of Chester, Shrewsbury, Liverpool and Manchester are also close by and accessible by public transport – giving you even more options for activities and nights out. You can also immerse yourself in Welsh history and culture from visiting local museums, historic houses and architecture, castles and art galleries.
