Welcome to Swansea!

Swansea University sends a warm welcome to Malaysian students. We have received hundreds of Malaysian students to our safe and friendly campus for many years, allowing us an extensive network of very successful alumni.  Students study with us for a full range of subjects and levels. 


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 has a low cost of living, with average rent prices 68% lower than London (Numbeo, 2023). We are also a UK Top 7 Safest City (Complete University Guide, 2023).

We provide students with support to achieve their academic excellence. Students can take advantage of services available through the Centre for Academic Success to improve their skills free of charge.

Our dedicated Employability Academy provides advice and access to jobs and work experience placements for our students and graduates. 

Swansea University and Swansea as a city are both culturally diverse. Our Islamic provision is excellent and helps students settle comfortably into life in Swansea, allowing them to focus on their studies with the support of the Muslim population and services.

We also have a vibrant Malaysian society to meet new friends and other Malaysians.
