There were no clubs or societies for what I know of, not easy to find another words. The computers kept crashing meaning we could not complete a lot of our lessons and had to catch up in our own time. Have no idea where the students union was or the careers adviser.
I completed a BSc Web Development degree and graduated with a 2:1 in July 2019. I would strongly advise people to stay away from this course, as I have struggled to get a job relating to Web or Software. If you think that you will be able to go into a job straight from University, you won't. I had to take a part time placement in a Charity and they eventually allowed me to update their website. P.S- This job is MINIMUM WAGE. Very, very disappointed with the amount companies do not care about this degree and would rather train up their staff and I quote "straight from school". I would only consider this degree if they offered you a year in industry, which is what they did to my year, but when it came to our time they found "nothing for us" and we had to "look yourselves through the summer". Disappointed.
Wonderful place to study. Great tutors, great facilities, the print room had me staring in awe the first time I saw it cause it's so BIG. Internet's a bit problematic and doesn't like letting you sign in but usually it works. Library's amazing, the cafe's amazing. Parking is super close, and it's also really close to McDonalds, which is obviously every student's priority.
The cafeteria is never open for us on Saturdays, or when it is only provides a small amount of food for all students there, leaving us sometimes with nothing to buy for lunch. Other than that, the university is good.
Specifically Swansea college of art section of UWTSD is terrible. Does not deliver as stated in any descriptors. The buildings look great and that is where it stops, they run a skeleton crew to make up for the building costs and the building is poor for lectures with rooms shared between all courses and personal study time.

UWTSD (Lampeter) is in dire straits. Now, my teaching was great and I really value what they showed me in life. Sadly the faculty is dreadful, complaints were not heard, the buildings are falling apart, the "club" on campus is a joke. Due to it's small size the place is a rumour mill. It's so bad that people leave and have even committed suicide due to rumours spread (mainly by people holding some type of strange grudge). Honestly, go if you didn't like school and didn't have many friends at home. If you did however have a life before choosing rural Wales be warned, the nerds have grouped there and will gun for anybody with an once of confidence.
If you want value for money, and to feel that you are valued as a student, then avoid this university. Severe cost-cutting and penny-pinching means that facilities for students are rather poor. Accommodation is tiny and poorly maintained, SU facilities are dire, and library and IT facilities are poorly equipped.
UWTSD gave me both work experience from two placements, one in the UK for a Software Company and one in the USA for a 14 month Management Internship; alongside getting a degree. You can't ask for more than that.
I spent some of my happiest years studying English at UWTSD Lampeter. The stunning Old Building brings a touch of Oxbridge to the beautiful Welsh countryside. The size of the Uni means you get to know all the lecturers really well and you make friendships for life. UWTSD Lampeter taught me how to think independently and enabled me to succeed in a way I don't think would have been possible in a large impersonal university. I will always be grateful for the experience.
I really enjoyed my time as a student at UWTSD Swansea. As a student for a second time I think I was able to appreciate even more the effort that goes in to support students from all walks of life. My course had great tutors who were easy to approach inside and outside of lectures and the small class size meant that we got a lot of individual support. There were also great links with industry that was great for helping us gain 'real world' experiences.
