Swansea University

Located on the doorstep of the stunning Gower coastline, Swansea University was founded in 1920 and prides itself on striking the right balance between excellent teaching and research, and providing its students with an excellent quality of life.

Set in mature parkland and botanical gardens overlooking Swansea Bay, the university’s multicultural Singleton campus is made up of almost 16,000 students and more than 2,500 staff. The third-biggest university in Wales in terms of student numbers, a new 65-acre campus is being developed on the eastern approach into Swansea. The ambitious Bay Campus programme will eventually see the university double in size.

Students who choose to study at Swansea become part of an ambitious, research-led institution and get to live in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. Many graduates choose to stay in the area long after their studies have finished.

The university itself is made up of seven academic colleges covering arts and humanities, engineering, human and health sciences, law, science, medicine and management.

Swansea also has an enviable reputation for producing successful sportsmen and women and is home to its very own International Sports Village. Located a five-minute walk away from the main Singleton campus, it offers an all-encompassing range of top quality indoor and outdoor facilities.

Located on the foreshore in front of Singleton Park, the university is also home to a £1.4 million beach and watersports centre. Offering activities such as kite surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and beach volleyball, it is open to students, residents and tourists.
