Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Redevelopment of Swansea University Bay Campus


Swansea University’s Bay Campus and the redevelopment of the existing Singleton Campus will mark the next step in the University’s journey in becoming a world-leading Institution promoting continuous innovation that is central to the vibrancy of the Knowledge Economy of Wales, and the UK and is one of the top-5 Knowledge Economy projects in Europe.

The University has already achieved its ambition to be a top thirty research University, soaring up Research Excellence Framework (REF) league tables to 26th in the UK, a huge leap from 52nd in 2008.   The Bay Campus will further enable the University to continue its period of tremendous growth and  ‘break-out’ of its current estate constraints, providing space for growth and facilitating increased collaboration with industry, pioneering an approach to co-location, intermingling academia, industry, research and students. Academics and industry will share not only on the same site, but the same laboratories and facilities.  By 2020 Swansea University will be a unique dual campus university, on a beach and in a park.
