As Phoebe Taplin outlined in her Guardian article of 4th August 2021:

вÐ,њThere are many reasons to base yourself in Swansea and imagine [youвÐ,™re] somewhere Mediterranean.вÐ,ќ

Swansea has low living costs and plenty of reasons to keep your work and life goals in balance partly due to it proximity to outstanding natural beauty such as the Gower Peninsula and the Brecon Beacons National ParkвÐ,“ while London is still only 3 hours away by train and airports and ferry ports are easily accessible.

Please note interested applicants who do not yet have a CCT date eligible for anticipated interview in December вÐ,˜21 should please contact the department for further discussion.
