Wrexham Glyndwr University is a vibrant, friendly institution where each student’s learning, potential and future is given personal attention.
Our inspiration, culture and heritage
Our name comes from Welsh scholar and hero Owain Glyndwr and we aim to champion his philosophies. He cherished learning, loved his country, embraced an international outlook, and constantly demonstrated an inspiring and enterprising approach to life. His spirit lies at the heart of Wrexham Glyndwr University, where we set out to be bold, enterprising and open to all in everything we do. We’ve been delivering education at our main Wrexham campus since 1887 and first started offering degrees in 1924.
Today, industry-led courses are at the heart of our offering. We pride ourselves on our links with leading local and regional employers such as Airbus, Kellogg’s, Brother Industries and the BBC. Their knowledge and expertise feeds into our courses, ensuring that out students are provided with only the most relevant skills for their future career.
Our diversity and innovation
We are extremely proud of the opportunities 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 thanks to our comprehensive Widening Access programme. The university is also the first HE institution in North Wales to become a Stonewall Diversity Champion.
