More affordable activities for students. More communal areas for students to interact. Bigger sport bars in Swansea town where students can go during big matches with reasonably affordable drinks.

I feel Swansea is a great place because if we take into consideration the beach the food the nightlife and the great university life then I feel that they could be one of the best universities in the UK

There are plenty of places to eat such as five guys, ask Italian, nines, smoke haus, pizza express or just a McDonald’s, there are several cinemas and a bowling alley to spend your time and there are so many shops in the town

Living in Swansea is amazing. I love living here, as a student everything is so close and accessible. Everything I need is close by, and busses are reliable. We have clubs, bars, restaurants, swimming pools, a beach, cinemas etc. Everything a student needs, Swansea has, and plenty of them.

Swansea is the most brilliant city. Wind street, one line of clubs and restursnts is so practical and brilliant for a great night out. The city is not overpriced and has plenty to do.

It is the perfect city. Not too big, but big enough to have lots of foreign foods, chain restaurants, great shops, and lots of takeaways to choose from. My favourite restaurants also deliver. Nights out are fun because it's a typical valleys town with the added bonus of bigger clubs, reasonably priced drinks, and a studenty party atmosphere. Locals are kind and it is not an expensive city to live in. It is easy to catch a bus/taxi and there is a train station.

One of the best cities to live in, such a nice place, most areas are really nice! There's a lot of shops to go to and a lot of things to do, especially for value of money

Many restaurants and bars to choose from, amazing access to public transport. Wind street will be the best night you'll have due to the amount of night clubs and bars.

This is a great city, everything you need in one place. Wind street is a great night out too. The beach is one of the best things about Swansea, especially during the summer.

My absolute favourite city in the UK. Amazing nightlife, architecture, history, food, locals, the list goes on. I always feel at home when I visit and there's never a shortage of things to do. The leisure centre is so much fun and the village hotel has an amazing spa if you're looking to unwind. The student community adds liveliness and excitement.

Swansea uni Singleton campus is set in Singleton park and has stunning views of the beach. It is very close to Wind St which is an amazing night out and is bargain on student nights! It’s also located near the city centre which is packed full of popular high street shops.

The uni is right next to the beach, which is ideal on a warm, sunny day. The night clubs are mostly all located on one street, being only a 5-10 minute taxi ride or 30 minute walk from the uni/accommodation. Housing is a great price, rarely exceeding £380 a month. Everything you could possibly need is only a short walk away, and living costs are low. I love it here.

Nights out are great for a rather small city. Shopping centre is rather good too. My accomadation is cheap but on campus accomadation is over prices. Value for money is good and Swansea has many thing to do.

Swansea University is great as depending on the campus, you're either right in the center of town or just a short bus ride from the centre. There is a huge variety of shops, places to eat and the famous Wind Street for Student nights out. There are plenty of public transport links and a large train station. Swansea is quite a cheap place to live and go out as it is a small City so you don't get big city prices and don't get ripped of which is great. There's plenty of things to do in Swansea too. There are parks, the beach, mumbles..the home of Joe's oce cream! Bowling, cinemas, galleries and museums. There's something for everyone.

The city is a very nice place to live with many sights and bars to go to. The restaurants are all quite good and the beaches all around are amazing to chill and stay at for ages and forget about every thing

The area of Swansea is such a charming, relaxing place to live. You've got numerous beaches on your doorstep, a city centre for all your shopping needs, and a thriving night life on Wind street. What more could you ask for?

The greatest and most unique thing about Swansea University is its location. Being literally across the road from the beach makes it a vibrant and scenic environment. There's always plenty going on in the main centre, as well as the more tranquil scenes of the Mumbles and Gower nearby.

Swansea University is right next to the beach, so not only you get a lovely view on your way to uni, but also a good place to chill with your friends inbetween lectures. A walk on the beach can do miracles in dealing with stress, so I'd definitely recommend Swansea University to future students!

If you are someone who is interested in outdoor activities, there is no better place than swansea! With easy access to some of the UKs best beaches in the Gower and having one right on your doorstep in Swansea it’s never been easier to get some sandy feet. The Gower is a perfect place for cycling and many watersports are easy to get involved in. Fortunately too, the Brecon Beacons national park is only half an hours drive away for brilliant walks in the mountains.

Wind street has many bars and clubs in a close vicinity. Great value pubs throughout the city. Right next to the beach, mumbles is particularly nice.
