The campus is brand new and still more to come with new computer science rooms and state of the art engineering facilities and labs, with 20 million being spent just on the new computer science building. My course (sport science) is very popular and 6th highest in the university rankings, with the newest physiology and biomechanics labs allowing us to get experience on the newest technology. The student union is very diverse in the sports and activities to do which provides alot of opportunity for social life and to get involved. There are frequent careers days with the highest or buissnesses and organisations such as GE and DHL to offer advice and career opportunities. With many lectures and talks with poeple offering advice and employment education to know how to cope with getting into a new career. The experience of Swansea is always a popular answer when asked, it being amazing with many areas in town for shopping, nights out and places to eat, with many educational and social opportunities which should always be utalised.

(I study on Bay campus only) Swansea Bay Campus is slightly out of town and thus is fairly difficult to get to/stay on at a low cost. Having said this, the campus itself is incredible and the facilities are truly second to none. I study chemical engineering and the lecturers are extremely helpful, genuinely kind and very supportive, I have never had a problem getting advice from a lecturer in the past. The personal facilities (Gym/cafeteria/shop/restaurant) on campus are fairly expensive and there isn't a huge amount of choice, however every student is currently being made well aware that change is on its way and feedback is both important and hugely sought after. To conclude, although there are a few small snags with the brand new campus itself, this can be expected on an ongoing project and everyone is frequently prompted to give feedback and various aspects in order for these experiences to be improved for students.

I have had the best time of my life at Swansea University. The atmosphere is very good and enjoyable. Living in halls was a lot of fun and now living in student area Uplands is also great fun. The only criticism I have is of the new Bay Campus, which is a beautiful campus yet the travel to the campus is long.

Swansea University has best location in the world, students get opportunity to do loads of field and practical training work with eco-friendly atmosphere. In it you can engage with whole world under one shelter. It has an international leading centre for Computational engineering research. Facilities and services offered by university are mind blowing, I didn't received such facilities anywhere. Student union very friendly and cooperative. It has renowned faculties with interdisciplinary research enthusiast. Societies and clubs of different domains, language, sports are more fascinating as every week they are arranging events, guest lectures and many more.

I'm in my second year in the uni now and overall I have had a good experience. Last year I had issues with my accomodation but they were all solved by the uni in a decent enough amount of time. The teaching standard on my course (Welsh) is great and all of the lecturers are willing to help in any situation. The university is very organised with things such as blackboard and timetable and I get regular emails from them about anything important that's happening.

The university has loads to offer with placements, studies abroad and career options. Lecturers are always on hand to help and teach a wide variety of interesting topics

Thoroughly enjoyable experience in a university that feels like it's moving upwards. Enjoyable lectures (marine biology), well organised modules (minus a few ironed out issues), a bustling atmosphere, countless societies with appropriate funding and a great location near wildlife and cities. The best of both worlds for a student!

Facilities are good over both campuses, staff are usually friendly and are able to help you with what you need

Great Uni, with beautiful surroundings, fun nightlife and supportive lectures. I wish I could have studied there for longer. So I could enjoy the mumbles for longer. It has grown in reputation on an upward trajectory when its neighbour is on a downward one.

I love living/studying at Swansea university! It's in a great location right by the sea and I love the new buildings on bay However I do normally struggle to find a space when I go into bay librsry, so I think bay librsry needs to be expanded. The buses are very good and frequent and the mobile app with the bus passes on works very well.

The campus is a wonderful place with everything in walking distance. Halls is on campus which means you can easily get to lectures on time. Courses are always interesting and can be interactive. Lectures are extremely enthusiastic

Campus on the bay has an amazing view but parking is a nightmare. Everything is new but construction is still underway

Swansea is a brilliant university....not only it focuses on studenys academic growth but also included in a huge family where any kind of support is provided...students make wonderful memories through various campus groups...legendary wind street is not far so we spread our social life in the best version.. I am proud to be a Swansea university student and to be a part of this huge family.

The university is easy to navigate, clean, and everyone is friendly. The lecturers are knowledgeable and willing to help no matter the circumstances. When arriving at the university we were reassured and everything explained what was expected of us, what the course would entail, but also what clubs, events that would be available to sign up to. Before starting here it was daunting, but one year in and I love going, t meet all the new friends I have made who I'm sure will be friends for life and learn as much as I can for a future prosperous career.

Singleton Campus is class, Bay Campus is getting there. BA course was great, MA course less so. SU throws great events!

Great location. Lecturers are always massively helpful and there whenever I need them. Online resources are superb

the campus is very good for engineering. Good equipment from windtunnels to flight simulator.The lecture rooms are good and capable to fit 100 and more people. Only thing is that with engineering, all coursework gets handed nearly all at once so it gets very stressful. the library is big but unfortunately can't cope with the amount of new students studying in the uni.

Very good lecturers who explain things in detail with full examples. Good facilities for both teaching and student life. Located right next to the beach, and a short distance to Swansea nightlife

The Bay campus is modern and has lots to do down on site, including a library to study and sports hall.

I am based on Bay Campus and the only criticism I would have is the lack of facilities such as a student union nightclub (such as Divas) or the small size of the gym. Apart from these the accommodation is amazing with the lecture theatres being a 2 minute walk. I study Business Management which is the best course I could have asked for.

The new campus is great but I wish it had more sports facilities and a bigger gym. I didn’t really use the students union for much at all. The career services are really good as they set you up very well for you’re year in industry. The lecturers struggled to record lecturers, it only takes one or two training days for IT staff to show them how to do it. Some of the lecturers materials online were genuinely appalling.
