Swansea is Wales’ City of Culture. It may be a small city, but it has a big personality! You can walk or cycle to most places in the centre (and the coast for that matter) from the university campuses.

20,000 students from all over the world call Swansea their home. The University spans two stunning campuses at each end of Swansea’s waterfront. Singleton Park Campus is set in mature parkland and botanical gardens, overlooking Swansea Bay beach. Bay Campus is located on the beach on the eastern approach into Swansea.

The City Centre has a great selection of shops, restaurants and bars; shop big high street names as well as independent boutiques, specialist shops and traditional arcades. You can visit designer boutiques in Mumbles, vintage outlets in Uplands or pick up a bargain in Wales’ largest indoor market in the heart of the city. The modern waterfront development boasts a brilliant café scene and the best museums to explore, including the Dylan Thomas Centre and the National Waterfront Museum (which is free!).

The city is also right on the beach – and further along the coast it just gets better. Gower has the kind of bays that postcards will never do justice. Epic Three Cliffs Bay and Rhossili grab the spotlight, but there are also countless coves to explore. You can even get involved in kayaking, surfing and coasteering; there’s plenty of adrenaline-fueled activities to try out if that’s your thing.

 

Wales is famed as the ‘land of song’ and as a student at Swansea University you won’t be disappointed by the range of music on offer across the city! Swansea boasts a huge variety of music venues and plays host to a number of music festivals and events throughout the year.

The moment you become a Swansea University student you will have all the careers advice and employment opportunities under one roof.  At Swansea University's Employability Academy (SEA) they make sure that your learning and experience exists in tandem leading to a successful graduate career. You will have the opportunity to engage with industry, take on placement opportunities and work experience, so that you are fully equipped for the world of work when you graduate. The University makes sure that you gain as much experience as possible in a work environment to help you develop your soft skills and to put your studies into practice.
