Swansea University Postgraduate Prospectus 2023

from Vice-Chancellor, Professor Paul Boyle

At Swansea University, our students and staff are central to our vision and purpose. We are proud to celebrate the significant contribution of our postgraduate community, which brings fresh perspectives that both inspire and enrich our work. We hope that, in turn, you find much to inspire you in the pages of this prospectus and consider joining our thriving community as a student and researcher. Research and innovation are at the heart of the Swansea experience and feed directly into the quality of our teaching. In this prospectus you will see many references to the real-world impact of our research, from greener, smarter steel, to pain-free vaccines. Choosing postgraduate study shows commitment and drive, and our dedicated teaching staff and world-class facilities will help you to realise your ambitions. We are globally ranked in all subject areas in the 2022 QS World University Rankings by subject and have achieved the highest award (gold) for teaching excellence at UK universities through the Teaching Excellence Framework. We are a diverse and vibrant university; indeed, we were ranked 2nd in the UK for Diversity and Inclusion in the WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2021.

We also provide a collegiate, supportive space for postgraduate researchers to make ground-breaking discoveries; in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2021), 91% of our research environment and 86% of our research impact was rated world-leading and internationally excellent. My first academic role was as a young lecturer at Swansea University, and I can personally vouch for the quality of the research-led education and the support that you will receive here. I hope my belief in our University is clear, but please don’t just take my word for it – book a place on one of our open days to find out more.
