The Innovation Matrix will be a new state-of-the-art building and eco-system focused on digital innovation, in the heart of Swansea’s SA1 Innovation Quarter.
The Best Of Both Worlds
The city as your campus? Check. Buzzing student energy? Check. Feel the sea breeze and enjoy the city vibes as you study and socialise in Swansea. You’ll be within walking distance of the five-mile stretch of stunning sandy beach – and all of the best pubs, restaurants and nightlife that Swansea has to offer.
Make It Your Own
Swansea is big enough to give you the space you need to grow, but small enough to make you feel like you belong. Here, the city is your campus and you’re sure to find your kind of people. From buzzing nightlife to a range of outdoor activities, you’ll become an integral part of a welcoming community, where you’ll meet some awesome characters along the way.
What You'll Study
Choose hitting the ground running with career goals firmly in sight. Make waves in business. Express yourself in Art and Design. Explore brand-new ideas and innovations with STEM subjects. Empower the next generation through teaching. Swansea is known for our innovative, industry-led and career-driven programmes which put you in the driving seat.
We have three main campuses in the heart of Swansea:
UWTSD’s new SA1 Waterfront Campus and Innovation Quarter development, in the city’s maritime quarter, sits next to the marina and a five-mile stretch of sandy beach.
The main building, the IQ, is where you’ll develop fresh ideas and discover new innovations with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects, with access to specialist equipment for your studies and projects. The IQ is also home to UWTSD’s education and teacher education programmes in Swansea. And our super-modern new library, Y Fforwm, with its breathtaking views of the city and sea, is just a few steps away.
Thinking about a creative degree? UWTSD’s Dynevor and Alexandra Road buildings, at the heart of the city’s art quarter and near the internationally renowned Glynn Vivan art gallery, are home to Swansea College of Art.
You can study a wide range of award-winning art and design courses here in our beautiful workshop and studio spaces. And when you’re in your final year, you’ll get the chance to showcase your work at our annual city-wide degree show – a popular cultural event in the city and beyond.
Want to make your way in the world of business or public service? UWTSD’s Swansea Business Campus (SBC), conveniently located near the train station, is where you can immerse yourself in our innovative business degrees.
You’ll learn from professionals and academics with industry experience – and develop the versatile skills needed for a career in business and management, public services, health, or as an entrepreneur. Plus, there’s student accommodation close by, which means you can roll from halls to your lectures in moments.
Live and learn in the heart of a thriving seaside city at UWTSD Swansea. The university’s locations include some of the city’s most beautiful historic buildings alongside some of its newest modern additions.
You’ll always be within easy reach of the city’s destinations for shopping, entertainment, culture and nightlife, and sports facilities. And if you fancy getting out of the city, head out and discover Mumbles – a vibrant and picturesque area full of bars and restaurants, with a pier and a castle – and the glorious Gower peninsula, just a few miles up the road from the city centre.
