Welcome to Swansea!

Swansea University is proud to welcome bright enthusiastic Kenyans each year across an array of programs from Engineering to Psychology. Our student-run African Caribbean Society is a great network which our Kenyan students particularly enjoy and with a vibrant East-African local community in Swansea, home comforts are also close at hand.‌


Swansea is ranked in the UK Top 25 Universities (The Guardian University Guide 2023) and 86% of the University's overall research was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent (Research Excellence Framework 2021).

We are Ranked Top in Wales (The Guardian University Guide 2023) and are a dual campus University. Both of our campuses are set on seafront locations, close to the city centre with a good balance of student life and study environment.

"Swansea University is a campus university, not a city university. Therefore it has a lot of amenities both educational and recreational conveniently on campus, which was important to me as an international student. It is also a community university where there are students from all over the world, which taught me about new cultures as well as feeling home at the same time, as there were students from Egypt/Kenya where I come from".
