By member432527 On 23rd June 18
Hi there- Swansea Universiy has two campuses, Singleton and Bay. They are about an 11minute drive away from each other. You don't need a car to get around either of the campuses though.

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback.  Swansea in itself is a great place to be - close to the city but also has the parks/beach on its doorstep.

 

We are always looking for feedback on how you think we can improve aspects of the university and you can email study@swansea.ac.uk and we can note your views.

 

Thanks,

Hi, its good to hear that you feel this is a good university for overseas students. There really are students from all over the world which gives it a truly international feel. You can find out what some of our international students have to say about Swansea here: International Student Stories - Swansea University  As I was born in Swansea it always makes me proud that visiting students enjoy their time here and recommend the university to prospective students.

Hi,

 

You cannot fault our location, although it is a bad habit that we often take it for granted and only when you end up somewhere else you realise what you had on your doorstep.

Lots of fun things to do, meeting up with friends, BBQ's or just taking a walking to clear your head.

From an environment view, the university hosts regular beach cleaning events to keep our beaches as clean as possible for us to enjoy.

Thanks,

Del

I love the way it prioritizes student life, there are weekly events and trips geared towards student involvement, I appreciate this level of engagement because it affords me the ability to meet people and explore. TSwansea University’s presence even before I applied was a major part of my decision to attend the institution. I have always felt supported and validated, I have never had a concern about my wellbeing or academic performance that has gone unanswered. c) I enjoy living in an environment that is scenic. Studying in Swansea is amazing because I have access to attractive locations worthy of exploring, Mumbles Pier, Rhossili Bay and Caswell Bay. The beach is also within walking distance and there are endless opportunities to take therapeutic walks.

After I finish my three studies, I feel like most of the lecturers are nice and want to help with our studies. It’s my great honor to study at this university. However, it is disappointing that the university agree to give me two reference letters but I only received one. Although I have written an email to complain about the program director that she deliberately reject writing another reference letter, the university chooses to ignore my email. It’s a bad experience.

I love this uni. I believe I picked the best option for the year it was. Staffs and departments are wonderful to say the least. Campus along Swansea Bay can't be beat. Not too crowded of a city and easy access from and to other locations around the UK. The student body and wider community are both freindly and welcoming.

All the staff here are so helpful, especially as someone doing a placement it can sometimes be stressful finding an internship but all the career staff are always here to assist you in looking for jobs and gaining work experience whilst attending university!

I really enjoyed my time at Swansea. The sports clubs and societies were really well run. Social life at the university was great and there was plenty to do. However, the on campus accommodation on singleton campus was very dated and run down. Some of the lecture halls in singleton were also run down. However the bay campus accommodation was a lot newer and had better facilities.

Overall I have had an extremely positive experience at Swansea university thus far. Bay campus is very modern, and convenient given that lecture halls are a short 5 minute walk from accommodation. Whilst I have had little engagement with clubs, societies and the student union, the careers service has been beneficial in the attainment of placement opportunities to further enhance graduate employability.

Swansea University is a university that offers a wide variety of opportunities and careers for all individuals. The delivery from lectures are very concise and are always available through email, zoom and office hours to provide any form of guidance. Swansea University tackled the online lectures and examinations extremely well, providing as much information to students as possible, making a calming approach to January and end of year examinations.

Despite the pandemic the uni did its best to offer a valuable student experience. I stayed at Bay Campus with its own private beach which is really good for getting away from all the studying for a while. As for student life, there were lots of online events happening throughout both semesters. The lecturers are very friendly and accesible. Also, there is an employability team within the School of Management that does a great job in helping students get internships, placements or graduate jobs.

I’ve made life long friends, and am leaving with a 2:1 in Law and a Masters in Marketing, for that alone I can not say a bad word about my overall university experience at Swansea

I put cardiff as my firm, then at the last minute when both unis had accepted me I decided on swansea (insurance) instead. I am SO glad I did. For this review it should be noted that it's for BAY CAMPUS My first year here has been like many other people, stuck inside for much of it and having to put up with online learning. Although in person teaching would obviously be better, I can't fault their online teaching. Every session was recorded, and canvas (where they put your calendar, your modules, assignments etc) was very modern and easy to use. Despite the obvious flaws of lockdown, the student union have tried very hard to put things on for us that could be done within the covid guidelines. I remember playing laser tag in the dockyard (big marquee) for example, as well as there being a food market for a couple of days. There were also quiz nights held in the marquee which were very popular. I'm nearing the maximum characters so Facilities- v.good Internet- use Ethernet

The university can be a fun place to be, but unfortunately, I have not had the best experience with them. The teaching quality is extremely inconsistent. Campus facilities on Singleton are run down and poorly, and campus facilities on bay are somewhat unsightly and soulless. Clubs and societies have also been highly inconsistent, and there is clearly little quality control from the university students union. Careers service points students mostly to jobs in companies that no one has heard of, which is not what students should aspire for after university. Most importantly, complaints about the lecturers and service received by students are very poorly attended to, and the university is defensive rather than forthcoming. Bit of an underwhelming university experience overall I'm afraid.

Worst student experience ever. Teachers don’t know english. Students have to pay £4 a day for parking, otherwise park 30 min walk away from bay campus. None of the relevant staff will do anything about it. Nobody does anything that the grading system disadvantages international students. Staff pretend to be helpful but behind close doors don’t take complaints any further. Swansea University is what one would refer to as ’potemkin village’. Everybody is pretending it works well and students love it, but students actually complain a lot about poor teaching quality (language barrier) and accessibility particularly. Absolutely ridicolous behavior from the University. Don’t recommend to anyone.

I just finished my first year in the university and I have to say I am utterly disappointed from almost every aspect. Most of the lectures are unqualified to teach their subjects. Not to mention that some of them don't know English very well. On the other hand, there are some lecturers that are absolutely amazing and teach you the subjects in a very interesting way. One of the main disadvantages is that when you need some guidance for a coursework and you ask your lecturers, they all guide you in various directions and at the end its a matter of luck who is going to mark it. However, they are very approachable. Living is Bay is mostly quiet, the buildings are new and clean. Living in HSV is absolutely DISGUSTING! Very old, smelly, loud, you have problems with washing your clothes, a lot of buses don't show up or are late, only one SPAR which has barely anything in it and is overpriced. Both Bay and HSV are overpriced. Advice: Find somewhere else to live in town or best avoid this uni.

Being at Swansea felt like being in a second home. From the minute I arrived I enjoyed the lifestyle, atmosphere, freedom and surroundings. Being next to the beach was wonderful and living on campus was really exciting. Throughout my three years I was able to make friends for life through my course and lacrosse society. Being involved in a club really enhanced my experience, you play together, party together and hang out together. Wind street being the central place for a night out was really good. It created a festival like atmosphere on the street every Wednesday night. A night out in Swansea is definitely the best night out in the UK hands down there is no where else like it. I felt really supported throughout my three years. My lecturers were always there to help and were really engaging in lectures. My personal tutor was always there to turn to in case I had any issues. Finally Welsh Varsity is amazing and no other uni varsity comes close #GWA

Swansea University is such a friendly place to study. The lectures are approachable and the flexibility within the courses allows you to specialise in your particular area of interest. Studying towards my Masters here definitely helped me to get the job I wanted and made me stand out from the crowd. The location is something that made this place a great place to live with stunning beaches and tranquil parks all within a stone's throw from the campus. I would thoroughly recommend Swansea to any prospective student!

More student union involvement on the Bay Campus would be good to see, as student services such as careers or societies are limited unless you are on the main (Singleton) campus or willing to travel to it.

Absolutely terrible uni. The Bay campus library is far too small with not enough computers and the uni management refuse to do anything about it. Singleton looks like a filthy, run down council estate. Library staff are rude and unhelpful. Many lecture theaters do not even have proper whiteboards and the projectors frequently malfunction. The on site tesco is too small and always runs out of food at lunch time. All other campus food options are horribly overpriced. Accomodation is overpriced and substandard, for instance one oven for 12 rooms and always cold. To be fair some lecturers are good and helpful but some are appallingly bad. Many modules you just end up having to teach yourself. Many societies are completely inactive. The uni always solicits student feedback but never acts on it.

As probably one of the only first years who couldn't find a society to join, I'm probably more at fault than than the societies are. Swansea is a very sports-oreintated university, and if you're about as good as a small infant when it comes to hand eye coordination, that could be a problem. However, if there was a musical theatre society, I'd join in a heartbeat.

Very impressive provisions, with almost everything you need in the heart of the campus: Grocery store, post office, banks (yes, multiple), resto's, coffee bars, cinema, clothing shop, pub, ... home deliveries from different supermarkets are no issue and the housing on campus is very decent, just 100 meters away from the sea. There's a very active social life, with a well functioning Students Union (however, they don't know how to throw really good parties; but Swansea's own nightlife compensates that very much ;) )

The new bay campus is great for when you have lectures as it is a 30 second walk to the lecture halls, the one aspect that is lacking is the social side, I'm not saying the place is completely dead but it could be a bit more lively at times.

Everyone is okay here at Swansea, aesthetically, not the nicest looking uni, with little things that could be added to make the uni experience just a little better. For example a hairdressers/barbers, an alternative to Costcutter. But JC's has a great atmosphere and is okay priced, and Tooters is very cheap!

Was great until they moved the Engineering to the Bay Campus which is a joke! Brand new buildings rusting away after being open for 2 months, WiFi that barely works, hardly any computers on site, an hours bus ride to the nearest shop and back, no SU Bar or social space. The accommodation is freezing and there's nowhere to store food/pans/plates in the kitchen. Car parking is non-existent. Lecture rooms don't even have chalkboards or whiteboards in them - even the lecturers complain! Half the site still has building work going on which you can hear over your lecturers voice.
