The College, Swansea University

‘The College, Swansea University’ is a joint venture between Swansea University and Navitas, which was launched on 28 February 2018.  It is the successor to the embedded college of Swansea University, which was previously known as International College Wales, Swansea (ICWS). 


The University's foundation stone was laid by King George V on 19 July 1920 and 89 students (including eight female students) enrolled that same year. By September 1939, there were 65 staff and 485 students. 


‌The College, Swansea University offers academic Pathways at Swansea University that lead to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. Our unique approach to education transforms international students into Swansea University graduates and lifelong learners.


Being part of the 120+ sports and cultural societies while you are at Swansea University will open up many social and career opportunities for you. We encourage our students to participate in these activities as much as possible.
