TOP UNIVERSITY GUARDIAN UNIVERSITY GUIDE 2022 IN WALES

THE TRENT/SWANSEA DUAL DEGREE

The University has made me feel at home, making a life-changing experience a smooth transition and has nurtured my growth both in school and in life. This is reflected in how I was able to place 8th in an England and Wales national negotiation competition while excelling in my studies. My experience is a testament to the wonderful staff, education, and culture the University has established. I am forever grateful I have the opportunity of attending Swansea University.

Swansea University, in partnership with Trent University, offers a dual degree programme leading to a Bachelor’s degree from each institution. Trent and Swansea have a lot in common. We both offer an exceptional education. Both universities are award winning. Our physical settings are spectacular, and, most importantly, we are both places where students come first.

Aidan Reesor Trent University

As a Canadian student from the Trent/Swansea Dual Degree program offered through Trent University, Swansea University has felt like a home away from home. I am thrilled to have this amazing opportunity to get my legal education in this charming coastal city. If you are looking to study law in a breathtaking location where you can explore and travel abroad while being surrounded by a supportive and inclusive community, then I would absolutely recommend coming to Swansea.
