Research Activity

The big challenges of today do not respect the artificial boundaries between traditional disciplines, which is why Swansea University's campus environment provides an ideal environment for multidisciplinary research to flourish.

The University fosters a healthy research culture that underpins all other activities at the institutions. Swansea is addressing the challenges that confront society in the twenty-first century by:

  • developing the University's research portfolio
  • encouraging innovation
  • investing in high quality and sustainable infrastructure
  • attracting and retaining the highest quality researchers and postgraduate students
  • working in partnership across and between disciplines and with local business and Government

These pages will tell you more about the University's innovative research centres and institutes, and our approach to research-led and practice-driven teaching. You will also find further information about our interdisciplinary research projects.
