Study On The Beach

AdvantagesRight on the beach, excellent facilities

DisadvantagesLong distance away for most people

"Swansea University, a.k.a. University of Wales, Swansea (UWS), has to be the ideal place to study for your degree. I'm am just coming to the end of my third and final year at UWS, and will be sad to see it go. For me it was the obvious choice. I was planning to do a Computer Science course, and looking through the rankings found in the daily paper, Swansea was ranked in the top 11 out of 120 departments for this subject, in the same league as Oxford ..."

My first opinion on Swansea Uni

AdvantagesFriendly, relaxed, lots of students.

DisadvantagesNot as big as Cardiff, not all courses.

"I've been at Swansea Uni for three years now and I've had a great time. I don't know of anyone that's come to Swansea and not liked it here. The university itself is a relaxed, friendly kind of place. The campus is compact and attractive and has plenty of bars and cafes for meeting friends etc. Library facilities are good - it's sometimes hard to get a PC at peak times e.g. lunchtimes but in the evenings it's much easier. The city itself is not ..." Read review

Fun and lively campus-based uni

AdvantagesLots to do, Swansea's a very student-focused place

DisadvantagesNot the most attractive location, bad weather

"I've been studying at Swansea University for two years now on a business management course. I never intended to actually come here, and just put it down on my UCAS application form because I had an extra space, but when I first visited the university on an open day there was something about it that convinced me I had to go there. First opinions of the uni might not be very good. The town needs a bit of a facelift, you have to cross a busy road ..." Read review

study it well

Advantagesa great place to study, lots of facilities

Disadvantageslots of work

"...this week that universities in Wales are getting the least amount of money compared to what is given to ones in England. The computers have been extending to, in the time that I have been there there has been an increase in the ones available. You do have to wait a few minutes until one becomes available most times but the later you go in the day or evening then it becomes more easier to get a free computer. There are lots of courses available, ..." Read review

My University

AdvantagesIt is in one of the most beautiful areas in the UK

DisadvantagesThe weather can get a bit crazy

"When filling out my UCAS application form i was initially going to do medicine and added Swansea for law and psychology as my safety net. After actually visiting the campus, i completly changed my mind, scrapped the idea of doing medicine and am now in my final year at the University of Wales, Swansea. This university is a stone's throw from the beach. Swansea bay is by no means the best beach in and around Swansea but it is perfect for inbetween ..." Read review
