What are the best things about studying at your university?

2017

"There's good teaching and resources and both campus locations are beautiful. There's something for everyone in terms of societies and amenities."
"The best thing about Swansea University is the sense of unity you get at the college. I instantly felt at home from the moment I walked into the great hall during freshers week and the campus itself is very beautiful with tastefully designed architecture centred around the great hall. The campus is also situated on the beach front so you're never far from the sea."
"We have a great location by the sea as well as great bus links that take you directly between the city centre and the two campuses. There's a very modern feel to the Bay campus and the facilities are great to use and work in."
"Lecturers are very available to help students if they have problems. There are good facilities and resources too."
"It was the Welsh University of the Year when I was looking and my law school is one of the best with lots to offer."
"There are many opportunities that come up to give you a chance to grow and explore your talents and future prospects. The academic staff make an active effort to help you in any way they can regarding academics and career options."
"The students' union seems fairly involved in actively trying to make it a better place. I enjoy how cultured the uni is and there is always something going on from science festivals to hustings to live plays in the theatre."
"The teachers are all great. They're passionate about their subjects, offer great support and are friendly and approachable. The facilities are great and I've never had a problem with anything. The library is well stocked and there's plenty of room to study. The campus itself is kept in excellent condition and the uni offers great student events both on and off campus."
"The university has teaching and research that is highly regarded globally. The location of the university is idyllic and offers both a busy city centre and stunning parks and beaches for leisure. The people in the area and the students and staff are all lovely people and students are given every opportunity to pursue any activity or module that will increase their career opportunities. There are so many different societies you can join to make friends easily and the nightlife in Swansea is phenomenal."
