Swansea University Postgraduate Prospectus 2023


Many members of our four thousand-strong postgraduate community are former undergraduate students who enjoyed their time in Swansea so much, they chose to stay! There’s lots of benefits to staying with us in Swansea to study your postgraduate degree: 1. You’ll already be familiar with the University, its campuses and surrounding areas. 2. Having already studied with us, you’ll know all the best places to live, study, eat or relax! 3. You’ll still be able to access the extensive range of services offered by departments such as the Swansea Employability Academy, Centre for Academic Success and MyUniHub. 4.You may already know several of your postgraduate coursemates, and you may even be able to continue living with former flatmates. 5. Swansea’s range of conversion courses allow you to study for your postgraduate degree in a completely new subject area. 6. If you choose to study in the same subject area, you can continue to build on your working relationship with academic lecturers and mentors, further developing your specialist knowledge. 7. As a current Swansea student, you’ll complete a much shorter application form for your chosen postgraduate course via Fast Track.

BECKY GREENWAY MA International Journalism student “I chose to complete my master’s degree at Swansea University because of the wonderful experience I had studying my undergrad degree here. Also, an important factor to me when deciding where to do my postgraduate course was employability and Swansea is known for its dedication to student employability. The biggest difference between my undergraduate and postgraduate experiences would be the level of difficulty at the higher level. However, at Swansea there is always help available to you from your lecturers, supervisors, library staff, and others who help you feel supported throughout your studies. My advice for undergraduates currently studying at Swansea who are thinking about staying on for their postgraduate would be to attend a postgraduate open day to find out more about courses and opportunities available to Swansea postgraduate students”.
