It’s been great but the lack of in person experiences hasn’t been the best. Honestly, I spent most of this year at home which means I haven’t managed to meet too many people on my course.
Overall it was good although freshers wasn't what I thought it will be. The lecture were interesting and professors very nice. The uni is beautiful and the location is also stunning. Massive park behind the uni with loads of space and a way to be one with nature.
Started as blended but with the lockdowns moved to all online
The best part is meeting new people and being in a new environment, the university experience has been okay but obviously not like normal due to covid. However, the uni has handled covid well and we have onsite test centres. We also had a few in person workshops in our first term.
Some lectures are good at providing online teach and some are not, some read directly from a text book for an hour straight.
Library and study spaces have been open even in lockdown
People I’ve known who went to the welfare team for help were just told to go home, as they were told they were a liability to the university.
Overall has been good but dissapointing due to covid restrictions as many facilities have been in accessible and have had 0 in person contact teaching. Despite this most teaching material has been relatively effective considering the circumstances
Currently not accessible so kinda usless
Swansea is a small city but it has its own charm. It is a seaside city south of Wales and has great places to explore every day. I love riding my bike to Mumbles and enjoying the sunset there. I love to try new bars and restaurants from different cuisines on Wind Street for the night with my friends. I love shopping at the ethnic shops on St Halen Rd where I can find all the ingredients to cook my favorite traditional dishes from my home country. If you are looking for quality education at the best universities in the UK, enjoy outdoor activities and long walks in wonderful scenery, and want to live in a multicultural city, I strongly recommend you to attend Swansea University.

I’ve really enjoyed my time at Swansea university. Teaching, both online and in person, has been great and I’ve always felt well supported by both the uni and the lecturers.
Support has been provided, there have been career workshops, fairs and all sorts
I’ve enjoyed my course, the change to online teaching has been smooth and I feel well supported. Teaching hours have been good and for the most part contact with teachers has been good
I haven’t been to campus for a while (year abroad then Covid) however the uni has always been very clean and has many study spaces. I assume the campus is even cleaner now with Covid
Availability for support has been outstanding
Not alot of effort has gone in to student wellbeing, I've done some research myself with local charities and they've said most of the people ringing mental health lines are those from Swansea university.
Not had a chance
From what I've seen the facilities are good. (only been there once)
Zero mental health help, ive been struggling since the start of term. I have a 5 year old daughter, I'm a single mum and I've not long left a 6 year abusive relationship.
Teachers have adapted well to online teaching and have made it easier to transition to learning from home. Some assessment formats need improvement as they don't always translate well when being done at home.
Lecturers have on the whole adapted to online teaching well, but I feel that the assessments still need tweaking.
Despite online classes and the despair of being by deprived a real physical university experience, I am thankful for the university’s amazing support in my studies from my lecturers to recordings to seminars to quizzes and so much more!
Overall, I had a very good time at Swansea University. I really enjoyed studying there under the supervision of the talented and experienced professors in all the course subjects. I have taken very informative courses that I always wanted to learn to further my professional background. Moreover, all of the university's facilities, classrooms and library are well presented and well-equipped.
Generally, the course was taught in-class. However, due to Covid-19 pandemic, the course was delivered online. Teaching hours are similar sufficient and contact with tutors was easy and they were always available through online zoom meetings or emails.
