Swansea University has a long and proud history of producing excellent research dating back to 1920. The university has always had a strong relationship with businesses and industries, but nowadays its research extends much further to cover areas like healthcare, wealth, culture, and general well-being on a global scale. In recent years the university has been particularly successful in terms of research output, comparable with many much larger universities - but without compromising the friendly and relaxed atmosphere that has come to typify the "Swansea experience".
