Located in the heart of the Houston-Dallas-Austin triangle, Texas A&M is a coeducational public research university in College Station, Texas. It is a state flagship university, designated as a land, sea, and space grant institution–the only university in Texas to hold all three. Within its faculty there are 19 members of the national Academy of Engineering as well as 11 members of the National Academy of Science. Texas A&M has participated in more than 500 research projects in more than 80 countries. 

Home to the George Bush Presidential Library, the main campus is one of the largest in the United States, spanning 5,200 acres. Texas A&M has over 1,000 student organizations to get involved with and around 88% of students will participate in a campus organization during their stay. In College Station, the summers are hot and oppressive; the winters are short, cold, and wet; and it is partly cloudy year round, so bring clothing suitable all weather conditions.

It will not be possible to complete a year abroad at this University if you have any assessments, such as supplementary or deferred exams, during the August assessment period at Swansea University.
