Why study at Swansea?

Swansea University has been named University of the Year in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards for the second time in five years.

In the prestigious Times and Sunday Times, Good University Guide 2019, we have risen six places into the UK Top 30. We are runner-up for the overall UK University of the Year, and have won the Welsh University of the Year title for the second time in three years, cementing our position as Wales’ leading higher education institution.

Swansea University is top in Wales in The Guardian University Guide 2020. The proportion of students satisfied with their course has increased significantly, with Swansea now ranked 4th in the UK. Swansea is also ranked joint 5th alongside Cambridge University for the proportion of students achieving graduate-level employment or further study six months after graduating.

We place our students at the heart of everything. As a result, we achieved a gold rating, the highest rating possible, in the national Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) and are ranked UK Top 10 for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for 2019.
