PhD loans of up to £26,445 are also available for eligible English, Welsh and EU students studying with us. The money is paid directly to you, and can be used towards the cost of your tuition fees and/or living expenses.

All of our research students are encouraged to attend a series of dedicated skills development courses. Courses such as Presentation Skills and Public Engagement and Career Planning and Progress are designed to support you in your studies, as well as prepare you for your future career.
  5. Spectacular scenery - our stunning waterfront campuses make us a desirable location for students. The University is just a short walk or bus ride away from Swansea’s city centre, which offers a variety of shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment options. Just along the beach is the magnificent Gower Peninsula- the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whether you feel more at home on the beach or in the city, Swansea offers something for everyone.
