Research excellence

Pushing back the boundaries

Research, the relentless pursuit of knowledge and understanding, has driven Swansea University’s growth for nearly a century.

From capturing carbon dioxide to create a greener plastic, to building houses which act like power stations, to understanding better the needs and aspirations of an ageing population, Swansea University is tackling the big challenges of today through research

In addressing the complex fabric of life in the 21st century, there are many challenges and opportunities. The issues facing us today do not respect the artificial boundaries between traditional disciplines, which is why Swansea University's campus environment provides an ideal environment for research to flourish, that other larger universities find hard to emulate.

As a student, you will benefit from this culture of research, and you will learn through research-led and practice-driven teaching to help ensure your degree is relevant to the modern world. We hope you will be inspired on your learning journey.
