Founded in 1920, the University stands in parkland overlooking Swansea Bay on the edge of the Gower Peninsula, Britain's first 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. As Wales' second city, Swansea enjoys a full range of social, cultural and sporting amenities and excellent transport links: London is 192 miles away, under three hours by train, and Cardiff, the capital of Wales, is less than an hour away.
The University offers over 529 undergraduate courses and 130 postgraduate courses in subjects ranging from American Studies to Zoology. As well as these full and part-time options the University offers an extensive range of continuing-education programmes and we pride ourselves on the holistic experience we are able to offer our students. With around 10,300 students the University is substantial enough to have excellent facilities, but small enough to have a friendly feel.
