Swansea is a beautiful place to come for university. The university is located on the beach and there are numerous sightseeing locations in Swansea which take your breath away. The lecturers at Swansea University truly care and ensure they do everything in their capacity to allow you to meet your full potential. There are several societies and sporting opportunities and you can even create your own society. The environment is very student friendly and people in Swansea are very kind. Swansea university is ranked very highly across a multitude of different aspects from courses they have to offer and research facilities to student experience. I wouldn’t necessarily call this the worst experience of my time at university so far but the downside for me has definitely been the weather because I come from a country where it’s summer for most of the year. Eventually though, you do get used to it.

University rating (5)

the best aspects of the uni are: - the welsh are the loveliest and the craziest people you will ever meet, the atmosphere of the uni and just nights out are immaculate! - wind street is a vibe honestly so good for a night out - bunkhouse and sin city have some great live music (string theory a swansea band + even tom walker!!) - you’re right by the beach which is AMAZING, beach nights with drinks and bonfires + societies related to water sports!!! worst things: - bay campus is pretty far out and the buses are awful a lot of the time so you really have to be committed to going to bay if you study there - the library’s are good but singleton is freezing and bay is pretty small all in all literally my favourite place in the world, i have so many lush friends and have done some crazy things that i would have never done at a different uni! UP THE SWANS!!!!

Marine Biology with a Year in Industry BSc (Hons)

University rating (4)

The location by the beach, with Singleton Park, and the Gower being so close by means student life is great. There’s opportunities for surfing, rock climbing, walking, kayaking and so much more, plus just lovely days out. However, the buses are very inconsistent which makes getting between campus and around the city frustrating and difficult. There are strong student feedback pathways and services like Unitu make feedback and the actions taken to remedy issues accountable to the student body. Mental health services at the university require serious improvement though and whilst there are a lot of very good and helpful lecturers, you can get unlucky with unhelpful and inactive personal tutors and lecturers in some modules.

Singleton campus isn’t the prettiest but some of the facilities (such as the medical school facilities) are amazing.

I guess one of the campuses is a bit outdated. Singleton is old and the library is small with limited resources compared to bay. Bay library is amazing though the computers are really useful and new and they make doing research much easier with such large screens. Locations for both campuses are great - the beach on Bay is so nice and singleton is right next to the beach as well. Food options on bay are limited though compared to singleton - a greggs on Bay wouldn’t go a miss.

University rating (4)

It’s very vibrant but some of the facilities need improvement . Also if the lecturers were more well paid I wouldn’t have lost 3 weeks of classes due to strike action . I think they deserve a better pay as they are the soul of the classes
