History, Affiliations and Rankings 

On July 19, 1920, King George V laid the University's foundation stone, and 89 students (including 8 female students) joined that same year. There were 65 employees and 485 students by September 1939. Singleton Abbey and the library were the only permanent structures on site in 1947. J S Fulton, the estate's principal, saw the need for expansion and envisioned a self-contained community with residential, social, and academic facilities all in one location. His ambition was to establish the UK's first university campus. Swansea University is also affiliated with many prestigious organizations such as the Association of Chartered Accountants (ACCA), Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), British Computer Society, Universities UK, European University Association among others. As per QS World Rankings 2022, Swansea University is ranked #440 across the globe. According to THE Rankings 2022, Swansea University is placed between #76 - 100. As per the Complete University Guide's University League Tables 2022 and the Guardian's best UK universities 2022 – rankings, the university ranks #29 and #24 respectively.

Infrastructure, Campuses and Courses

The university embarked on a large-scale campus extension and development project in 2012, culminating in the inauguration of our Bay Campus in 2015, which houses the College of Engineering and the School of Management. In 2018, it welcomed two new projects: The College, a joint venture between Swansea University and Navitas (The International College Wales Swansea, ICWS), and the Computational Foundry, which houses the College of Science's Computer Science and Mathematics departments. The best part is that both campuses are within easy reach of the beach. Bay Campus has its own personal beach, so it's like being in paradise if you study and live there. The beach is a short walk from the Singleton campus. The views from the top floors of Singleton's student housing are equally breathtaking. The College of Human and Health Sciences at Swansea University is Wales' major source of health-care education, bringing together health, nursing, midwifery, social care, health economics, ageing, children and young people, social policy, and psychology. There are 8 colleges namely, College of Engineering, College Arts and Humanities, College of Human and Health Sciences, Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law, School of Management, Swansea University Medical School, College of Science and The College, Swansea University. The university also has very distinguished alumni, each stalwart in their fields.
