Our Research

Research at the University of South Wales is focused on providing solutions to problems that affect society and the economy.

To make this sort of impact, USW researchers are increasingly working across disciplines. Society faces big problems which require expert researchers in their own disciplines to collaborate with researchers in different disciplines and increasingly, in other institutions or research centres. 

USW is proud to be a part of the University Alliance. This is a collective group of Universities that use its collective experience of providing high quality teaching and research with real world impact to shape higher education and research policy for the benefit of students, businesses and civic partners.

Research at USW is primarily focused through its Research Groups and Centres although research is not exclusively through this route. Our Life Sciences & Education research is also facilitated through Cognate Groups.
