Collaborative Programmes

Swansea University’s Strategic Plan 2012-2017 states that by 2017 Swansea University will have:

  • Grown and maintained strategic international partnerships with international educational establishments that will enhance and support our research, teaching and student recruitment ambitions (I1)
  • Provided more international opportunities for our student body to improve their University experience and employability (I2);

To this end Swansea offers a number of collaborative taught masters and PhD programmes, of which three have the prestigious Erasmus Mundus label, and a limited portfolio of foundation degrees. See below for details of what these are.
