Swansea University

Founded in 1920 and just three hours from London by train, Swansea University is an established university with a long history of academic success, excellent facilities and high standards of teaching.

When students choose to study at Swansea University, they become part of an ambitious, research-led institution and also benefit from living in the one of the UK's most naturally beautiful regions - the beach is a short distance from both campuses and the city of Swansea is nestled on the edge of the Gower Peninsular.

The University was also ranked in the 6th in the UK for Student Satisfaction in the National Student Satisfaction survey (2020) and UK Top 5 for Graduate Prospects (Guardian University League Table 2020).

The University is in the UK Top 10 as the most affordable UK University Town ( 2019) and one of the safest cities in the UK (Complete University Guide 2020).
