Why Swansea?

Signs of UWTSD on Beach

SWANSEA is a seaside city, a great place to live and study: big enough to offer you the space you need; small enough to make you feel that you belong.

Discover all the amenities and cultural activities you would expect in a university city on your doorstep: theatres, cinemas, great galleries, museums, restaurants, bars and an exciting student nightlife.

The country's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Gower Peninsula, with its breathtaking sandy beaches, is a just a few miles along the coast.

An award-winning maritime quarter, the Waterfront Museum and Wales National Pool are some of Swansea's many attractions. As well as rugby and football, the city's wide variety of sporting options include surfing, mountain biking, paddle boarding, climbing, tennis and golf.

Swansea is a great place to study. Known for its friendliness, distinct personality and humour, the cost of living here is also lower compared with many other university cities. There are exciting plans to make Swansea even better, including new shops, restaurants, offices, housing and an indoor arena.

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David offers a wide variety of programmes in the fields of art, business, education, science, social studies and performing arts in Swansea.

The University also supports the ambition to make Swansea a Human Rights City.
