UK: Swansea University - a students perspective

Swansea law student Tim Sculthorpe recently shared his view of life at Swansea University with Times Online.

Saying “it’s a wonderful place to spend three years”, Tim cited the location as the universities biggest draw. But in addition to its seafront location next to Britain’s first designated “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”, the Gower Peninsula, Swansea has also been voted “Best Student Experience” in the UK (THES 2005).

Swansea is a vibrant city just 35 miles from Cardiff, capital of Wales. It has regular direct rail links to London and other major cities in the UK. The cost of living is markedly lower than in other areas of the UK. Accommodation is guaranteed for all first year students, with on campus accommodation a mix of catered and self-catering in hall blocks. A nearby student village, 20 minutes walk from campus, also offers affordable living. In second and third year, expect to pay rents of £45-55 per week in private accommodation.

A campus wireless network is active in every building across campus, and allows access to high-speed broadband for registered laptop owners. Laptops are also available for loan and there are computers available in the library and the Student Union building computer lab.

The student union operates a bar and nightclub on campus. The bar operates as a coffee bar by day, and is a great place to study by day and have fun at night. There are many other great venues in Swansea, including the Money Bar nightclub (or café during the day). Many students also enjoy the vibrant fishing village of Mumbles, with its famous pubs and also delis, boutiques and surf shops.

International students at Swansea benefit from a specialist international careers advisor, with regular workshops and counselling sessions, and a variety of community based social activities such as a monthly International Night in Llanelli, 10 miles from campus.
