The University's name comes from the Welsh scholar. The University has been delivering education at its main Wrexham campus since 1887, when the University was known as the Wrexham School of Science and Art.
In 1927 the School of Science and Art became Denbighsire Technical Institute. As the Institute and demand for courses grew, the Institution became in 1939 Denbighshire Technical College.
The College continued to grow over the decades and merged with 3 colleges in 1975 becoming the North East Wales Institute of Education. After the merge the new Institute became one of the largest institutions of its kind in the UK.
In 2008, the Institute gained university status and Wrexham Glyndwr University was born.
The University is conveniently situated on the Wales-England border, providing easy access to the nearby cities of Chester, Liverpool and Manchester to the East, the rugged beauty of Snowdonia National Park to the West, and great beaches along the stunning coastline to the North.
Wrexham itself is steeped in heritage, with beautiful scenery and numerous historical sites, as well as a bustling town centre with great shopping, a thriving culture and entertainment scene, and buzzing nightlife.
Wrexham also has great railway connections, with two main stations that run direct services to Chester, Holyhead and the North Wales Coast, Shrewsbury, Birmingham and Cardiff. You can also be in London in just over two and a half hours, Edinburgh in just over four, and Dublin in under six.
