The newly opened Chemistry Department is leading highly collaborative research across campus and internationally.
From a more personal perspective, Swansea is a middle size city by the sea, which offers a high quality of life in a unique natural environment. From Swansea you can visit The Mumbles, explore the Gower peninsula, and enjoy beautiful beaches like those in Caswell Bay or The Three Cliffs Bay. It is a great place for those into surfing or sailing. If you like outdoors, you can enjoy the astonishing Natural parks in Wales, like Snowdonia and Brecon Beacons. If you enjoy urban life, Swansea is very well connected by train to Cardiff and London, from where you can also travel internationally.
