Swansea University


Swansea University is the perfect environment; just three hours form London, in which to combine studies with a superb quality of life. Founded in 1920, we are a traditional university with a long history of academic success, excellent facilities and high standards of teaching.  Swansea University is firmly within the top 30 research intensive University (REF2014).

The 2014 QS World University Content by Subject ranks Swansea University in the top global 200 in Engineering (Civil, Mechanical, Structural), English Language, Literature & Linguistics, Geography, Law & Legal Studies, and Environmental Studies.  In the 2014 QS Stars global university ratings system, Swansea University is awarded 5 stars for teaching quality, facilities, internationalisation and engagement.  

Our collaborative research links with industry are among the best in the UK, and our long history of working closely with multinational organisations such as Boeing, Ericsson, IBM, Rolls-Royce and Sony, offering industry work placement opportunities for our students.

In September 2015 Swansea University will become one university with two stunning campuses.  It will be home to College of Engineering and School of Management, providing state-of-the-art facilities for students, staff and businesses in a truly inspiring location.
