The Wrexham Glyndwr University, UK is awarding a £2,000 scholarship opportunity towards the cost of the applied programmes at the Institution.
Formerly known as the North East Wales Institute of Higher Education (NEWI), it was granted full university status in 2008 after being a member of the University of Wales since 2004. The university is named after the medieval Welsh prince Owain Glyndŵr, who first suggested the establishment of universities throughout Wales in the early 15th century.
Wrexham Glyndŵr University is a public research university, in Wales, with campuses in Wrexham, Northop and St Asaph. It offers both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, as well as professional courses. The university had 6,045 students in 2019/20.
In 1993, NEWI became an associate member of the University of Wales and all further education courses in Wrexham were moved to Yale College, Wrexham (now part of Coleg Cambria). In 2004, NEWI became a full member of the University of Wales and in 2006 became accredited by the University of Wales and exercised devolved powers to validate and deliver its own degrees. The university was officially renamed “Glyndŵr University” in July 2008 after being granted degree awarding powers. The name was chosen in favour of other suggestions such as “University of Wrexham”, “University of Wales, Wrexham”, and “North East Wales University (NEWU)” amongst others. The university was visited by the Queen in 2003 and by HRH the Duchess of Gloucester in 2005.
In June 2014, the Home Office suspended the University’s authorisation to sponsor international students.
On 24 November 2014 Glyndŵr University has had its right to sponsor international students reinstated by the Home Office.
In 2016, the university underwent a minor name change and is now called “Wrexham Glyndŵr University” in English, and “Prifysgol Glyndŵr Wrecsam” in Welsh.
The university’s School of Creative Arts operates the Wall Recording Studio on its Plas Coch campus, the former home of Calon FM community radio station.
