SWANSEA UNIVERSITY

 

The university is located in one of our most affordable and attractive locations in the UK and right on the beach. Only 3 hours from London by train, Swansea's beautiful boardwalks, marina and coastline inspire exploration of the surrounding national parks, mountains and lakes, all while studying in a vibrant, forward-thinking city. One of the UK's top universities, Swansea offers a comprehensive array of courses in the Arts & Humanities, Engineering, Human & Health Sciences, Management & Business, Sciences, Law and Medical Sciences. Large enough to provide a wide choice of sporting/social activities while small enough to provide a safe and welcoming community. It achieved the highest ranking for teaching and was voted UK University of the Year by students in 2019. Students from GOV, IRG, ECO, and EUS majors may apply for exchange semester-long internships at an NGO, UK or Welsh Parliament (see links below). Engineering majors except for PGE will find many courses available.
