“From a young age, I always had a keen interest in cars amongst other modes of transport. Combing this passion with my love of design enables me to essentially work on my hobbies every day. My favourite thing about the course is the small class sizes and regular one to ones with lectures, this means it is easy to know if I’m on the right track with regards to my work. Additionally, the lecturers really know me as a person, rather than just seeing me as another student”.
“I was drawn to the Automotive Design course in Swansea due to the uniqueness of the setup. The atmosphere was very friendly and the staff and students are all very welcoming, making it an easy decision to study here. Having small numbers on the course makes it more competitive to get on to, therefore, I knew that I had to strive to produce the best portfolio I could to enable me to obtain a place. The feedback is always extensive, another positive is having our own dedicated workspaces – with no desk sharing”.

“I have always been infatuated with cars and it was my dream to study car design at University in the UK. The Automotive Design Course at UWTSD is amazing and everything I hoped it would be”.
“I have always wanted to study this course. When looking at Universities, UWTSD seemed to be very passionate about this subject and meeting the lecturers made the choice very easy. This course allows me to do cars as well as transport which is important as I want to specialise in boats”.
“I cannot remember a time when I have not drawn cars, so automotive design feels like a course made for me. I like the satisfaction of seeing your work translated into an art form, that's what makes the course unique from others. I enjoy the tasks set and the challenge of sketching every day”.
“As soon as I found out that there was an automotive design course out there, I've had my heart set on it. I adore the amount of space and technology that is offered throughout the campus and course. The facilities are perfect for anything, from Photoshop rendering to model making, I'm excited to see where these next few years will take me! "
“I've always had a strong passion for and interest in cars and, after viewing the universities that offered this course in the UK, I chose this one because of the balance of the quality of the facilities and smaller class sizes meaning better opportunities for 1-2-1 tutoring. I've particularly enjoyed the involvement in our course from the wider industry”.
