Overview

What we stand for

Gower College Swansea is a Further Education institution created following the merger of Swansea College and Gorseinon College. Thanks to our highly committed and talented staff, we are able to provide outstanding learning and training opportunities for young people, adults and employers across South West Wales.


Gower College location

The College is located across a number of sites in Swansea.  Swansea offers an amazing location, with a unique blend of city, coast and countryside.  A modern, vibrant city, located by the sea, with easy access to the Gower, the UK’s first designated area of outstanding natural beauty, which has 32 miles of coastline, award winning beaches and lush, rolling countryside. While Swansea has a rich industrial history, it has changed significantly over the years with new developments both in the city centre and marina areas of the city. Swansea also has a rich sporting history and boasts Wales’ only Premier League Football Team. As a relatively small city, Swansea also offers the advantage of a relatively low cost of living. 

 Only a stone's throw away is the charming fishing village of Mumbles a popular tourist destination, offering a variety of attractions, including a pier, boutiques, craft shops, ice-cream parlours and restaurants.  To the East of the 'Waterfall Country' at Afan and the Vale of Neath is a haven for walkers and bikers alike.
