Swansea University

Swansea University matches academic excellence with an enviable quality of life.
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.

Swansea University is ranked in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide Top 30 in 2019– a testament to the continuous investment in facilities and improvement in the delivery of teaching.

The University was also ranked in the UK Top 10 for Student Satisfaction in the National Student Satisfaction survey (2019) and UK Top 5 for Graduate Prospects (Guardian University League Table 2020).

I absolutely loved my time at Swansea U. They have a wide array of societies you can join, wether it's academic, athletic, cultural, or otherwise social. So much more than my previous uni in London. The location is awesome- right by the beach and a park, or two, and close to town ( walkable, or by bus). I had great acamedic experiences at Swanse...
