About the Scholarship:
Swansea University, which recently celebrated its centennial in 2020, is well regarded for teaching excellence and student happiness. Its two campuses are each only a few hundred meters from the beach. Singleton Park Campus was established in 1920 and is surrounded by acres of parkland with views of Swansea Bay. The new Bay Campus, which has its own private beach, debuted in 2015. There are three academic faculties that offer undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs to students from over 100 different nations. The University is a research-intensive institution that seeks to address real-world issues and global difficulties. In terms of societal impact, about 90% of its research is classified as “world-leading” or “internationally excellent.” Work placements or integrated years in industry are available on most degrees, and the award-winning Swansea Employability Academy provides free career advice and possibilities. The University aspires to provide opportunities for all undergraduate students to study or work abroad. Swansea University is a welcoming and friendly institution that values its students.
