Wrexham Glyndwr University

Glyndwr University started in 2008 so we’re still one of the youngest universities in the UK. We’re named after a Welsh scholar and hero called Owain Glyndwr and we aim to champion some of the same philosophies as him.We are 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.



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 started offering degrees in 1924.

Others become aware that they have needs which require individual attention after they have arrived.The Disability Team can help with needs arising from a disability or impairment.

Student Reviews

A mediocre university.
Mario Mieza rated 2 out of 5 stars

I studied Broadcasting, journalism and media communications (1st year) and I must confess that I did not feel like I was progressing very much. I went there to learn about journalism but the actual lectures of journalism felt like being in high school again, just reading articles and although I talked to the teacher about the lack of challenge of this subject, it remained...

The only problem i found was the diferencies between the programme there and the one in my home city

The student was given a lot of autonomy to study which was great because we could organise to get the assigments done in time and without doing them in a hurry (unlike my home university). However, the academic contents we studied were not really advanced.
