Swansea welcomes Texas exchange students

Students from a leading US university in Texas have been spending four months studying at Swansea, part of an undergraduate exchange programme which has grown out of a wider partnership between Swansea University and Texas.

The group visiting Swansea are from Texas A&M University, based in College Station, which has nearly 70,000 students.

The Swansea-Texas A&M student exchange scheme has been running since 2012, with students from Medical, Chemical and Environmental Engineering at Swansea spending their autumn term studying in Texas, with students from Texas A&M coming to Swansea in the spring.

The exchange forms part of a burgeoning partnership between Swansea and Texas which also includes research collaboration, knowledge transfer, sharing of infrastructure and the exchange of academic staff.

Dr Caroline Coleman-Davies, who manages the University’s strategic partnership with Texas, said:

“I often meet prospective exchange students back at their home university when they are considering studying at Swansea. It's a real pleasure therefore to meet them once they have arrived in Swansea and to hear how much they are enjoying their time here.

Swansea University encourages students to study abroad for part of their degree, and offers funding opportunities.
