Please don't pay £30,000 for this course, you could not waste more money if you tried. There is nothing about this course which could ever justify paying such an absurd amount of money. Tutors are condescending and unhelpful, nothing is taught. It feels as if independent/self lead study is one huge excuse for tutors to not do anything. Students are provided briefs and tutors exist to merely offer advise as opposed to actual teaching. You will spend little time with your tutor yet you won't feel like you're missing out. I will never waste more time and money than this in my lifetime.
Very happy, I will soon end my first year and look forward to the next, I feel inspired and motivated. Whilst I am strongly self motivated, the environment here only looks to reinforce that mentality. Even if you're not like me, staff and students work together to make everyone believe that you are going to succeed. The support is there as are the facility’s, so do not hold back, come to Swansea mad start for filling your dreams.
We will see, what I can say for sure is the careers advisors are excellent. It would be my recommendation to arrange a meeting with an advisor in your first year, make sure your on the correct course and as Mr Miyagi said, remember “never put passion before principle” chose the right course for your future, your career and aim high!
Despite obvious concerns many have about online learning during the pandemic, I can whole heartily confirm that the experience has been excellent. Swansea university have made very effort to see I have access to my course materials and given me more than suitable access to books, even the staffs time has been well unitised in my first year. I look forward to September, if the situation changes I will work with it and I know Swansea Uni will too.
The Union runs events all the time and during the pandemic have made every effort to gain funding for everyone enrolled at the University to enjoy a little music and a cold beer.
The University has everything it needs to operate, it is after all a place of study. Being from Portsmouth I have seen some amazing University facilities. With this in mind i must add that Swansea continues to grow and build. If your joining soon, honestly... your coming to a fantastic University.
I am a mature student, so spare time is spent with my family, however I know for certain that Swansea City will BOOM when the lockdown is lifted. It is a great welcoming city with friendly faces and plenty to do be it bars cinemas or long walks on on the beach.
To my knowledge there are a wide range of facilities and clubs at Swansea University, no least my favourites, Karate and Football.
Excellent support for all, it is comforting to know you are never alone at Swansea University.
It was a great experience studying at Swansea university at bay campus. Faculty and teacher were very helpful. The library was very good and its 24*7. The accommodation was also good and security over there was very good. My overall experience was amazing.
The faculty was very helpful and amazing. Loved the campus. Perfect university
Room size was ok. But, safety was excellent and everything was amazing including WiFi, common room, security, and etcetera.
It was easy to travel between uni to city centre. You can travel by bus 10 to city and it was easy to travel to bus station and train station.
Swansea University was not my first choice but became an incredible home for me. The City is a student City where you always know people walking around or on nights out which made it feel like home. I studied at the continuously improving Bay Campus which held a sweet Student spot in itself for studying, meeting friends etc - I also played Rugby and was selected in the Varsity Trials and would recommend Swansea to anyone who asked
Such a great time at uni and received so much support throughout my time. Beautiful location, amazing facilities and so happy I’m studying here. Brilliant university
Outstanding support from staff
Swansea university is an amazing university with a brand new campus with amazing facilities and incredibly friendly staff. Would recommend to anyone. And always remember that an hour spent on the beach between lectures is never a waste.
A great experience with a multitude of academic opportunities and countless social options for everyone. The university has a community like feeling and is somewhere that I have no problem calling home. Both campuses have their own attractions, with bay campus being on the beach front. As for Swansea itself; it is the best uni city to be in during the summer due to the beaches on and off campus, and the nightlife is like no other
Faultless academic support, and tutors with outstanding subject knowledge. Much more professional and supportive than anything I have experienced before. Socially brilliant, location is lovely and the effort and support from staff and support staff throughout lockdown and the COVID situation has been second to none. With the university reacting well to the changing situation and always keeping the student body informed via the SU, administrative staff, senior staff, course leaders and tutors.
Careers and professional development advice available constantly while studying and even long after you graduate.
Constant access and support from tutors and supervisors throughout lockdown. Hugely supportive and excellent subject knowledge.
Constant feedback from the SU. Welfare emails during lockdown.
Alls paces are excellent... non-teaching support staff are always helpful and on hand. Library staff are constantly running training and support workshops.
Before.lockdown, the university had a great social structurw with a range of societies.and activities. During COVID, the university has embraced lockdown and still managed to maintain a feeling of student community.
Great sports facilities, and a wide range of societies. Very open to developing and forming new society groups.
MyUni query and answer app, counselling, financial support, administrative teams who are amazing and student reps in each year 9f every course.
Swansea is such a great student town to live in, the neighborhoods of Uplands and Brynmill offer a quiet and lively mix of parkland and leisure. The student union offer a huge range of sport and activity, as well as ample support in every facet of uni life. Most campus staff are readily available and useful regarding academic queries. The beach is unreal in the summer.
My course has always been incredibly supportive with lecturers going the extra mile. The SU are incredibly vocal about student voices and put on lots of activities
