"There are excellent teaching standards and the research is some of the best in the UK, being fifth in some of the league tables."
"There are great courses and interesting modules. The uni is in a beautiful location in Singleton Park, right opposite a beach. There are many clubs, societies and sports to join so you're completely spoiled for choice."
"The university supports you in every area from grades to finance to housing. Just ask and there will be help. Swansea is such a cheap area to live in as well and the nightlife is amazing."
"We have supportive lecturers and the students' union is great. There are lots of activities and fundraisers for student welfare."
"The location is excellent for an undergraduate and the courses are challenging and interesting. Both the lecturers and the university itself are very supportive of students who need it. The location itself is one of the greatest bonuses with the university being a short walk from Swansea Bay with many lecture theatres overlooking the beach. Aside from this, Swansea itself is great with brilliant nightlife, a cheap cost of living (standard rent is around £270 per month without bills) and is very close to the scenic Gower peninsular."
