We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Swansea is a city on the south coast of Wales, situated around 160 miles from London. It is the second largest Welsh city after Cardiff (35 miles to the east). There are two universities in Swansea and around 25,000 resident students.
Postgraduate students in Swansea enjoy living in a historic city with easy access to other parts of the attractive South Wales region. Though much of its growth occurred in the nineteenth-century, Swansea retains many features of its earlier history, including the remains of Swansea Castle, which form an attractive centrepiece near the city centre.
The nearby coastline is particularly popular with tourists and includes some of Britain's most attractive beaches as well as walking routes in and around the hills and cliffs of the Gower Peninsula. Regular train connections run to Cardiff and onward to London, making it easy and convenient to visit other parts of southern England and Wales.
Swansea's largest university, Swansea University, was first established as a university college in 1920, before becoming part of the University of Wales in 1996 and an entirely independent institution in 2007. It is usually ranked in or around the UK top 50 and is particularly renowned for its work in engineering and physical science subject areas.
The city's other university, Swansea Metropolitan University traces its origins to a group of nineteenth-century colleges, but is now a campus of the University of Wales Trinity St David.
