Swansea University has multiple disciplined areas of study and research with extensive library and library services plus health and well-being bringing a wide diversity of experiences. Swansea University is a fantastic university.
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.
Many study spaces all around campus. Always places to get food and drink. My course society is very fun. I have no idea about the student union but everything is good. Can always connect to the internet and there is plenty of support.
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!
