    Hey, I got accepted at Aston university, Swansea and Queen's for B.eng chemical engineering. Queen's is itself a great university but i am trying to avoid belfast due to the city's bad reputation. So swansea is quite high on my priority list though i just wanted to know how is the life in the city. I heard the city is dead and there hardly is something happening in the city but swansea is still a a firm choice for me i guess. I am an international student and has never been to UK so that's why i am curious to know about the city.

    Nice, I'll be attending on the 21st. What subject?



    Swansea is possibly the furthest one I've applied to so I wasn't sure if I should visit but there's something about a discussion with admissions tutors and so I thought might as well go, well done with the offer btw, what subject?

    Hello, the foundation year is done on campus where you will be studying for the rest of your degree. Engineering will be based at the new Bay Campus which is opening in September with brand new facilities. I hope this helps!

    I am a resident of Swansea and would highly recommend a visit. the engineering department is moving to a brand new campus that is currently being built around 4 miles from the main campus. there will be approx. 900 rooms on the new campus which will house the schools of engineering and business. I don't know whether your foundation year will be at the uni or not. I suspect it will. email the department who can tell you more

    there are going to be 900 rooms on site from September with a further 550 to be built the following year. it is about 2 and 1/2 miles from the city centre. the fresh student is practically in the city centre. I would suspect most engineering students will live on the new campus. I passed the new campus last week and many of the buildings are already built with scaffolding removed. there is more detail on the university website

    I'm still waiting on an offer (only applied on Tuesday but already have 4/5 conditional offers!) from Swansea but I really liked it on the (soaking wet) open day in October!

    I'm applying for Economics and I'm just wondering if anyone else is applying for anything else in management or engineering, as we'll be on the new campus that's about 4 miles from the main campus, and what people think about Swansea having 2 campuses
    I've applied for Business Management. I think the new campus will be great. I wonder how much the accommodation will be though..

    Yeah, got rejected from 3 - Cardiff x2, and Reading. Had a condition from Gloucester, and then an unconditional from Swansea
