University of Glamorgan
Llantwit Road, Pontypridd

CF37 1DL


At Glamorgan, we are proud of our growing reputation as a provider of quality higher education, best illustrated by an excellent Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) Institutional Review in November 2008 and impressive outcomes from the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.

As part of our commitment to excellence, we are undergoing a £130 million capital programme, including ATRiuM – our landmark campus at the heart of Cardiff city centre, new state-of-the-art science laboratories at Glyntaff and a new iconic Students’ Union building at Treforest. Renowned for its friendly community and supportive atmosphere, Glamorgan continues to grow and attracts more than 21,000 students to its campuses in South Wales and delivery points across the globe.

We pursue research in pursuit of new knowledge and understanding driven by a spirit of academic enquiry. In keeping with our role as an institution firmly embedded in our local, regional and national communities, we also have great strengths in problem driven research conducted in partnership with external stakeholders.

We are fully committed to building on the University’s strong track record in all areas of research in order to expand and enhance our contribution to knowledge generation and the application of that knowledge to problem solving with our external stakeholders.

We recognise that many issues require a multi-disciplinary approach and are setting up cross-university Research and Development Centres to bring together relevant expertise from across all our faculties to address particular themes. The first three such Centres focus on Enterprise and Entrepreneurship; Regeneration and Sustainable Communities, and Disaster Management and Emergency Response.

We received excellent results in the Research Assessment Exercise 2008(RAE2008), confirming our status as one of Wales’ research active Universities.
