Coronavirus: latest information

A warm welcome from Professor Matt Jones, Head of Swansea University's College of Science.

Matt is a world-renowned author and researcher with a passion for extending access to technology in the developing world. This video is a great introduction to our friendly Swansea Science community.

Head of Department, Professor Dan Eastwood welcomes to you our Biosciences Virtual Open Day.

Our Biosciences department, based on Singleton Campus, offers undergraduate courses in biology, marine biology and zoology. Our degrees are accredited by the Royal Society of Biology, which means that you’ll graduate with all the skills that employers are looking for.
