In 2021 Swansea University and the University of Canberra launched a partnership in Sport and Exercise Science that will see them deliver collaborations in research, teaching and student exchange.

The partnership will build upon long established collaborations in this area and, it is hoped, will mark the beginning of a broader relationship between the two institutions in line with their shared values and in support of their shared global ambitions.
