Very challenging, the course is demanding but rewarding. Outsdie of the course, sports are very well run, however it is espensive to joim most teams, and i feel like the tuition fees shoukd cover this
Yes, its abiut a ten minutenwalk to accomodation for most students
Very vroad eange of sports and societies
It feels rushed sometimee in lecturres, but the teachers are focused
I think it makes a good effort
I love the uni and if can have more societies it might be more fun. Also i hope we can have the chance to have the timetable of other modules so that we will be able to go and listen
Having great tutors but not having personal stuff
It is a little far from the city
There are quite a lot
Like the modules and don't actually like the test after Christmas hoping it can be taken before the Christmas
Not actually feeling about it
It’s been great fun! There’s always something to do and everyone here is so lovely. Living on campus has been such an advantage because the distance to my lectures and seminars is so short.
Top-notch. Very good condition as they are maintained by the university very well.
Every lecturer has office hours where you can go to for extra help. Tutor meetings are held regularly also to help with anything you are worrying about.
Very good they encourage students to get involved and run lots of different events.
It’s a 2 min walk from my accommodation and we have a supermarket on campus which is always useful, along with a pub and a cafe.
There’s a huge variety of sports and activities to get involved with.
They are flexible and you can change your classes to fit you’re available. The seminars are a fun way of explain the lectures well.
There are many career nights and jobs are advertised around campus.
The accommodation feels very secure in terms of safety because you need a specific key card to enter your flat. The location is amazing as it’s right by the sea and has a lovely view of the beach. The cost of premiere rooms are high but the conditions are worth what you pay here.
When I first came here, my English was very bad and I didn't know anything because it was my first time abroad. The staff greeted me so friendly that I felt at home. The staff even carried my luggage and brought me to my room, it was tremendous that they were so understanding. The first time we met the teachers was fun and they showed us the university and the places we could benefit from. They helped me to improve my English skills.
Very good even have great facilities. I especially enjoy the excellent sports facilities.
The university offers many scholarships to many students. This is perfect support. Teachers work very hard, you can always ask for things you do not know and get instant feedback, even if you are interested in specific problems can find immediate solutions.
There are many students' union and I get involved many of them because it provides great entertainment and experiences.
It's a very lively city, people are so friendly. There are many places to visit and activities, especially for students, you will never get bored in this city.
The clubs are very active. It's easy to get in touch with, and there are even great activities for students who feel lonely because of cultural shock. So you never feel lonely. As a community they are very helpful and you always feel safe here.
definitely have a very good education. and the courses have a lot of training material, so the training is progressing perfectly.
working with many companies
I'm staying in the residence of the college accommodation. It has an excellent view and is also very clean. When you wake up with the sea view in the morning, it makes you feel very lucky. The smiling face of the employees are reducing my longing to away from my family. I really like living here
lonely, expensive i wish i was on the other campus or in a better city, life is lonely and a bit miserable at the bay campus. the teachers are good though and subject interesting
there is a library but everything else is about 40 minutes away on the main campus
tutors are good dont know any other support
i dont if there is one? ive never seen it probably on other campus with everything else?
its ok but i dont drink and it seems to be mostly about that. i am scared to go to the railway station at night as 3 of my friends have been mugged there
? they dont have any on bay
teachers are good
i dont know
its new but really empty so not much of an atmosphere i find it really lonely. also the campus is nowhere near anything and the bus is really expensive to get to town £5 return. I cant afford a car and if i could i couldn't afford the parking its £5 a day on a rubbly car park on the beach... i had hoped for more community and more of a life at Swansea the college
It has been a wonderful and new experience in all the good aspects. Its been a lil over two months and it feels like home and doesnt feel i have cone down from another country.
They maintain high standards and are very good.
It is extremely well maintained and are very supportive and helpful. Especially to international students like myself.
Chilly. It is amazing
They are all run by students and are all self funded and are extremely active.
The teaching methods and lecturers are great.
It is amazing. Tge best uni accommodation ive ever seen, infact it is the best anyone would ever have seen.
It has been eye opening. I have been introduced into a new chapter of my life and so far I am enjoying it even though it’s a lot of hard work. There are many opportunities to get involved and make friends which is what helps you push through the hard times.
Brilliant! So modern and the technology is top notch.
Very good. Lecturers constantly make themselves available for questions and help if needed. I have seen there is a mental health department that is very well advertised.
Swansea University’s students union is very jacked up! With loads of societies offering a wide range of actuvities it’s the perfect place to be. I would say I do attend a few events but majority of the time workload is too hectic.
Swansea is most definitely a student city. There are endless restaurants to try and Swansea is just a short hour away from Cardiff.
I am not a member of any as yet.
I like the lecturers the most. They are passionate and very well qualified. I like least the way the assessment schedule runs. In the beginning of the semester it is very quite and near the end you are flooded with work. I’d prefer the workload to remain as steady as possible.
Swansea University ensures that throughout they year there are many life skills courses available as well as volunteer work. By attending these events I have the opportunity to gain numerous employability skills.
There's nothing missing at the college Swansea it is suitable for the hardworking student and any student that loves to have fun while studying Summarily, it's where you want to be
i'm still new to the student union
interesting and sociable
i like the fact that they make it possible for students to read ahead of the class and beyond the class and all lecturers are very fair and approachable
there's an academy solely for employability
it has been amazing.i have met new people of different cultures .i have learnt about many things.everyone here has been so supportive and ready to help.i look forward to experiencing more amazing stuff in Swansea
i do not get involved in the students union because i am a new student and i have not gotten really familiar to it
i have not joined anyone yet
i really like the small class size.
they help you to involve in students activities and other things that will make it easy for you to get employed
it is very comfortable.the people are nice and friendly.it is very convenient and safe.
