Swansea University

Swansea University is set in rolling parkland overlooking the majestic sweep of Swansea Bay. The campus is a stone’s throw from the old fishing village of Mumbles, whose unique seaside atmosphere is complemented by a vibrant social scene popular with students. Travel just a few minutes in the other direction and you reach the Maritime Quarter, a modern waterfront village complete with restaurants, art gallery, theatre and a busy marina.

The Gower Peninsula, Britain’s first “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”, is within easy reach from the University. Unspoilt beaches and dramatic cliff top views provide a stunning location for water-sports, cycling and walking, as well as unparalleled research opportunities for students studying natural sciences.

Swansea itself is a lively city of 230,000 people. Its friendly shopping centre includes a world-famous indoor market that dates back to the Middle Ages and offers traditional, locally produced food. Culturally, the city is home to the Dylan Thomas Centre, which celebrates the life and work of the great Welsh poet. Theatres, festivals, museums and galleries enhance Swansea’s rich cultural diversity.

London is less than three hours away by train, Cardiff an hour. But with parks, castles, woodland, wildlife centres and breathtaking coastal scenery surrounding the city, why would you want to go anywhere else?
