What we aim to achieve:

The Women Graduates Swansea University Society seeks to help women in higher education to progress in academia and achieve successful leadership roles. The society will work to bring university women together locally, nationally, and internationally to showcase their research and academic achievements. Additionally, the WGSUS aims to create network enviroments such as conferences and talks for female students to present their research or area of study.
