Technium Digital – Swansea University
Swansea University alone has over 15,000 students and offers more than 500 undergraduate and 130 postgraduate courses in a wide range of subject areas, from American Studies to Zoology.
More than 6,500 students had enrolled to study at Swansea Metropolitan University, which has four faculties: Faculty of Applied Design & Engineering, Faculty of Art & Design, Faculty of Business and Management and Faculty of Humanities.
Trinity’s students come from all over the UK, plus there is a growing community of international students studying at the campus. In September 2012 Trinity St David merged with Swansea Metropolitan University, the new Institution, called University of Wales: Trinity Saint David.
All three universities have students from overseas, representing more than 30 countries world-wide, ranging from Scandinavia, Europe, India, China, USA, Canada, South America and many others too numerous to name. In today’s global market place, knowledge and ability to work effectively with others is vital and having overseas students is important to university life, not just from an educational perspective but also culturally, raising social awareness and understanding.
