Amazing university experience from start to finish

(5)·By Faith L·Aerospace Engineering· Jun 2023
Staff are extremely helpful and nothing is too small for them. Lecturers have office hours and are always happy to go through things again. Outreach opportunities are amazing and the Bay Campus is so modern and fresh. Plus who doesn't want to study on the beach?!

Excellent staff and student environment, the college of Law and Criminology was and still is a great place to study - would recommend to anyone looking to at a future in criminology or law!

Lots of places to go out, teaches are very passionate about their subject matter. Lots of sports and societies to join, I enjoy archery. It's a beautiful place to live, planning on staying in Swansea a while after I've finished my degree.

Sports / Sports Science, Graduate

(5)·By Ellie U·Sports· Jul 2021
Really good, there was lots of engaging activities which you could participate in. Lots of the local clubs and places in town were also holding events for the students which was great. The accommodation was amazing! When I moved in I was the first to live there and it's so high spec. It's a brilliant environment to learn and make friends in. The facilities are also incredible with the campus only having recently been built and lots of new buildings constantly being built. It's modern and there's loads of new equipment and places to study and learn. The course is so engaging and what is learnt in lectures is so applied. The lectures are all researchers themselves so are so passionate about the subjects they teach. Swansea city is amazing with there being so many things to do in the town centre which is close to the accommodation. You're also living on top of a beach which is beautiful to walk along and relax as well as play sports on. It's the best of both worlds!

Aerospace Engineering, Year 2

(5)·By Albin J·Aerospace Engineering· Jul 2021
It was great as there's plenty of places to go out with ur course mates and flat mates, one of the best nights out is at swansea Bay campus is excellent, very secure and safe and very conveniently priced for its features Library at bay campus could be bigger and better but Singleton library is great Lecturers were very supportive and course was easy to follow throughout. It got a bit more difficult cause of coronavirus It's a relatively small city but it's got everything you need and everyone is so nice.

Geography and Environmental Studies, Year 1

(5)·By Amelia·Geography· Oct 2018
My flat mates are the best thing about coming to Swansea. I've made so many new friends and the people here are lovely. The beach is so close, the sports village is amazing and the SU offers a lot to all of us. My lecturers are clearly passionate about what they do and are very influential on us students. The accommodation is perfect, especially because it is on campus and so close to everything I need as all facilities are just a short walk away. The staff are always ready to help and fix problems almost immediately. There are so many great societies to be a part of which I love! Wind Street is also famously an amazing night out!

Swansea University is Lovely

(5)·By James S·History· Jun 2023
The university accommodation at Bay Campus is wonderful and modern. I will admit that Singelton Campus has a far inferior accommodation. The course I take is insightful and informative and the facilities at the university are 10/10. Lastly, the social life is far better than you would expect at the university especially with enough nightlife and lots of social clubs within the university

Great uni!

(5)·By Barsa A·Nursing· Jun 2023
Swansea University is such a great uni. The support you receive is incredible and everyone is so helpful and supportive, especially when you have moved to a completely new place with no else. There is opportunities to find friends that will be with you for the rest of your life. Nursing is a course that can be hard and tiring but the lectures are so supportive. The course contents are so informative and will provide you with everything you need to know.

Online degree

(5)·By Bella M·Law· Jun 2023
I did my masters online but still had great access to support and lecturers were on hand to answer my questions. They made the sessions engaging and easy to follow.

My undergraduate degree was very enjoyable and the accommodation on bay campus is amazing. The travel from bay to singleton is not particularly easy though.

Would recommend Swansea to everyone, I had a great time.

Law, Year 1

(5)·By Bethan B·Law· Oct 2018
I'm from Swansea so I'm living at home, but the people I've met are awesome. Nights out in Swansea are crazy and definitely ones to remember (most of the time).
I'm very lucky to have such engaging lecturers. They are all very quick to respond to emails which is important to me because I'm very passionate about my subject and want to do well.
I joined the Show Choir society which is a lot of fun. I'm going to be in a competition in London. I never would have had this opportunity. I love my university :).
