Welsh-medium provision for students

Our Geography courses will prepare students for a rewarding career in a wide range of areas within the public and private sectors. Geography graduates typically find employment in the fields of the road and transport systems, statistics, surveying, exploration, film and documentary production, charity work, journalism and academic research. The ability to communicate scientific topics through the medium of Welsh is a key skill required by increasing numbers of employers, and Swansea University is perfectly situated to take advantage of this.
