Welcome to the University of South Wales’ Sports Journalism website. ExpoSport is where you will see information about the course and, more importantly, work produced by students on the course and some contributions from staff.
Here we showcase the best work and provide news, interviews and insights into what’s happening in the world of sport – from reporting on university teams based at our Sport Park in Treforest,to examining the key issues being discussed by fans and pundits.
