FTR Metro

The most convenient method of travelling to the assessment centre from the centre of Swansea is to use the FTR Metro.

This service has a daytime frequency of 12mins and uses highly accessible, distinctive purple articulated buses.

Friendly customer service hosts sell tickets and can also answer queries once you are on board.

The service operates directly into the Swansea University Campus, with a stop outside the steps of Fulton House. Details of the service are available here.

NOTE: The bus calls at Singleton Hospital BEFORE the University.

Directions to the centre from the campus taxi / bus stop

On leaving the bus or taxi, turn left along the pavement, then right around the edge of Fulton House.

Cross at the crossing, then turn right past the day nursery.

The assessment centre is the second to last building on the left, marked “Assessment and training centre for students with disabilities”

Travel to us on Foot or by Bike

We estimate that it takes approximately  40mins to walk along the promenade from the centre of Swansea to Swansea University Campus. You may therefore prefer to catch the FTR Metro bus service.

Take the Promenade cycle track out of Swansea until you reach a large metal footbridge spanning the adjacent dual carriageway. The university entrance is clearly visible and signposted to your right. We estimate that the journey will take approximately twenty minutes from the railway station.
