About the institution

Glyndŵr University is one of the UK’s youngest universities. It is based mainly in North Wales with campuses in Wrexham, Northop and St Asaph, as well as a London campus in Kingston-upon-Thames. Fast-track degrees are an option for some courses, allowing students to complete a degree in two years rather than three. There are plenty of sporting activities on offer and the university owns the Glyndŵr University Racecourse Stadium, where Wrexham FC and the North Wales Crusaders rugby league team play home games.
