About Wrexham Glyndwr University

Studying at postgraduate level is a big commitment, and Wrexham Glyndwr University has the support system, research expertise and facilities to help you succeed.

We work side-by-side with employers, including global giants such as Toyota, Tata Steel, Airbus and the BBC. No surprise then, that Wrexham Glyndwr University consistently scores as one of the top universities in Wales when it comes to postgraduate employability.


At Wrexham Glyndwr University we believe that opportunities for higher education should be available to everyone, and we strive to provide the best possible accessibility for all students. In fact, we have been ranked number one in England and Wales for social inclusion for the fourth year running, and are joint first across the UK in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022.

Our inclusion team offers a range of services to help anyone with a disability or learning difference, from our on-site Assessment Centre to our extensive Assistive Technology Suite.

We also have a multi-award-winning Students’ Union which has a wide range of societies open to postgraduate and undergraduate students alike. Plus, we were the first university in north Wales to become Stonewall Diversity Champions.


As a university, we are open to innovation and ideas, producing ground-breaking research and working on world-leading developments. One of our most notable successes saw our team at the OpTIC Centre in St Asaph polish prototype mirrors for a £900m project on the world’s largest telescope.

Research opportunities are available across a diverse range of subjects, focusing on areas which make a difference to industry and communities, as well as having an impact on economic, social and cultural issues.

The university is also a signatory of the Concordat to Support Research Integrity, and we’re proud to have retained the HR Excellence in Research Award, demonstrating our long-term commitment to the career development of our researchers.


We offer a comprehensive and diverse range of support services at Wrexham Glyndwr University, from our award-winning Careers and Employability service to our specialist one-to-one study skills support. In 2019, we were commended for our personalised student support by QAA, the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.

You will be well-represented by our Students’ Union too. Crowned Students’ Union of the Year in the National Union of Students Wales awards in 2018, it also won the NUS Participation Award for its period poverty campaign.

Student, Andy Cairns, said: “Wrexham Glyndwr is quite a small university and the academic community here are very active researchers, so this really is a superb university to choose for postgraduate study – you will be warmly welcomed and effectively supported throughout your studies.” Read his full story here.


Our campuses are home to a range of state-of-the-art buildings, equipment and facilities; from our Creative Industries Building and cutting-edge research centre in St Asaph, to our £3 million conference and performance centre with a separate theatre studio. We’re also delivering an impressive programme of improvements and developments as part of our ambitious £80m Campus 2025 upgrade plan.
