Welcome to Swansea!

Ghanaian students have been a well-established part of our student body for many years. With our African regional office staff visiting Accra and Kumasi each year to interview students in areas such as Health Sciences and Business management. We warmly welcome students across all academic levels especially Master’s and PhD due to our internationally recognised research.


Swansea is ranked in the UK Top 25 Universities (The Guardian University Guide 2023) and 86% of the University's overall research was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent (Research Excellence Framework 2021).

We are Ranked Top in Wales (The Guardian University Guide 2023) and are a dual campus University. Both of our campuses are set on seafront locations, close to the city centre with a good balance of student life and study environment.
