Swansea University offers award-winning postgraduate study in an unrivalled coastal location. In 2017, we were named Welsh University of the Year by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide, and we were also delighted to be crowned winners of the ‘Postgraduate’ category at the WhatUni?

As a postgraduate student, you’ll be part of an academic community that is committed to ground-breaking research. Swansea has been providing outstanding postgraduate study since 1920, a legacy that we’re proud to continue today.

Swansea offers a wide range of postgraduate taught and research programmes, ensuring that you’ll always find a subject you love.

Our postgraduate programmes are designed with your future employability in mind; all of our courses will provide you with vocational skills that employers demand. Swansea’s collaborative research links with industry are some of the best in the country. As a postgraduate student, you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside global organisations such as Rolls-Royce, IBM, Airbus and the NHS.

Alongside producing outstanding research, Swansea offers you superb teaching quality. We have been awarded the highest 5 star rating for Teaching Excellence by the globally recognised QS Stars Ratings.
