University of South Wales

ABP Newport Marathon Festival | NEWPORT, WALES


Overlooking the River Usk, the University of South Wales’s Newport Campus is one of the city’s most iconic buildings, offering a vibrant, professional space where students on a range of courses collaborate on ideas as they study. Working together, students at the campus have the opportunity to obtain skills and knowledge to fully equip them with the all-round experience demanded by their professions.

The campus is home to the National Cyber Security Academy (NCSA), a Welsh Government and USW initiative to help address a shortage of cyber security skills and develop the next generation of cyber security experts. The Academy is the first of its kind in Wales and a major UK initiative. Industry partners include Airbus and General Dynamics.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Julie Lydon said, “As the region’s university, with a campus in the heart of the city centre, USW is proud to sponsor this year’s Newport marathon.  This is a fantastic event which brings people from all over the world to the City, and we are thrilled to be a part of it.
