Swansea University and the University of Trent, Ontario, have entered into a dual-degree agreement under which undergraduates from the Canadian institution will spend three years in Swansea completing a Law degree before returning to Trent to complete their studies there.
Aside from the many benefits to be derived from the opportunity to travel, live and study for a significant period in another country, students on this scheme will be in a position to proceed to further legal study in Canada a year sooner than would be the case had they studied Law in Canada.
A delegation from University of Trent consisting of President and Vice-Chancellor, Dr Leo Groarke and Provost and Vice-President Academic, Dr Jacqueline Muldoon visited Swansea on 11 July 2016. After a formal signing of the agreement between the two institutions, the visitors were taken on tours of both Swansea campuses and later had a meal with members of the College of Law and Criminology.

It is very much hoped that the partnership with Law will be the first of many collaborations between the two institutions.
