Located on the stunning Swansea Bay coastline, this Welsh university provides easy access to the city centre, as well as to the beaches of the spectacular Gower Peninsula.
Swansea has recently been named University of the Year by students at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2019, where it was also runner-up in the Postgraduate category. It’s also recognised as a UK top 30 research institution (Research Excellence Framework 2014).
The University offers a range of taught and research postgraduate programmes across several academic colleges:
Swansea’s campuses are currently undergoing a period of re-development in anticipation of the University’s centenary in 2020, with both the Singleton Park and Bay campuses undergoing extensive renovations and improvements to provide state of the art student facilities.
The University’s libraries provide specialised subject librarians to help you with your studies, dedicated postgraduate study areas and training courses for doctoral students.
Postgraduate student reviewers were very positive about their time at Swansea University, praising the experience as a whole, from the facilities available to the level of support on offer.
Swansea University Students on Postgraduate Search say:
“My overall university experience has been very enjoyable. I have learnt so much already and met some excellent people. The first week was a little intense, re-adjusting to a formal learning setting again, but I have really enjoyed the challenge.”
“Great, would not change a thing - great city, campus, lecturers etc. Would highly recommend the university to any future perspective student, undergraduate or postgraduate!”
“I had the most positive experience at Swansea I think I could have asked for. I had some brilliant lecturers, I absolutely loved my Undergraduate degree (American Studies) which I achieved a First Class in which then earned me a fully paid scholarship for my Masters, I got 2 excellent jobs in the University as well as 2 separate work experience placements, and when I needed the emotional and academic support it was there, when I struggled with the transition in my first year I spoke to the Wellbeing centre and they were so helpful and supportive.”
As well as offering a range of taught and research degrees across a variety of subjects, Swansea ensures postgrads are looked after by giving them their own open days, dedicated study spaces and reserving sections of University accommodation.
To make things easier for postgraduate students, Swansea has a directory of expertise on their site so you can find academics who are working in the industry you want to be in and contact them with any questions you may have.
