Swansea University

Outstanding postgraduate study in a stunning seafront location

Study with us at Swansea University and you’ll become a valued member of our welcoming postgraduate community of over 3,500 students.

Here’s just a few of the many reasons why you should study at Swansea for your postgraduate degree...

  1. Courses tailored to your interests

Whether you’re looking to study for a master’s, PhD or other postgraduate qualification, we offer a wide range of courses in:


  1. Award-winning postgraduate study

We’ve been delivering outstanding postgraduate study since 1920, a tradition we’re proud to continue today. 2019 was an award-winning year for Swansea- we were named Welsh University of the Year by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide, runner-up for the overall UK University of the Year title, as well as runner-up in the ‘Postgraduate’ category at the WhatUni? Student Choice Awards.

As a UK top 30 university for research (REF), all of our postgraduate programmes are guided by internationally recognised research. You’ll be supervised and taught by our team of talented academics from across the globe.

  1. Scholarships and funding to support your studies

We understand that the cost of your studies is one of the most important factors when deciding on a university for your postgraduate degree. Last year, we offered just under £10 million in postgraduate scholarships, providing funding across a range of subject areas and qualifications.

Postgraduate government funding is also available for UK/EU students starting eligible master’s courses at Swansea.  If you’re an English, Welsh or EU student looking to undertake a PhD level course with us, you may be able to borrow up to £25,700 towards the cost of your studies. Learn more about your options on our postgraduate loans webpages.

Swansea has recently been named the UK’s ninth most affordable university town (TotallyMoney.com). With affordable housing options and a low cost of living, you’ll find it easy to make your money stretch that little bit further.

  1. Enhancing your future career prospects

Our courses will do more than just expand your knowledge of a subject area- you’ll also gain invaluable employability skills to help you stand out in an increasingly competitive jobs market. Our students have the opportunity to carry out industry-linked research projects and undertake work placements with international partner organisations such as Rolls-Royce, Airbus, the NHS, Santander and Fujitsu.

You’ll also be able to take part in a range of short and summer work programmes in destinations such as China, India, North America, Japan, Africa, Australasia and Europe. The Swansea Employability Academy will be on hand throughout your studies to help develop your skills in CV writing, job searching and interview techniques.

  1. A warm welcome to international students

We currently have more than 2,000 international students from over 130 countries studying with us at Swansea.  We offer you quality education in a safe and friendly environment, guaranteed University accommodation and academic language support classes for international students.

  1. The perfect combination of city and coastal living

At Swansea, we offer you more than just outstanding research and teaching quality. On the doorstep of both our Singleton Park and Bay campuses are sandy beaches, green parks and a range of leisure activities. We’re also just a short walk or bus ride away from Swansea’s city centre, which offers a variety of shops, restaurants, bars and attractions such as theatres, museums and cinemas. Just along the coastline is the spectacular Gower Peninsula- the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Gower provides the perfect natural environment for a range of sports, such as hiking, climbing, surfing and mountain biking.
