About The Bridge / Y Bont

The Bridge is a joined up network of support to help you prepare for your future beyond University.

We recognise that your journey begins as soon as you start at Swansea College of Art, UWTSD.

This approach towards professional development is embedded within our degree programmes, through live briefs, industry links and community engagement.

Extra-curricular opportunities are also available to enhance your professional development, examples include: student internships; opportunities to curate and participate in exhibitions; engagement in collaborative research with companies; working with community groups and social enterprises as well as Artist in Residence opportunities post-graduation.

Our Life Design initiative runs throughout your time at University and offers an opportunity to think about what you value, the skills you have already and those you wish to develop. The Life Design team will support you in exploring what you’d like to do in the future, without the pressure of having to know all of the answers right away.

In addition, The Bridge offers opportunities to work collaboratively in a multi-disciplinary way and provides networking opportunities with industry and community partners.

As your time at University progresses, our Enterprise Team is here to help you develop your creative ideas for freelance and start-ups.The Creative Bubble allows you to trial some of your ideas in a safe and supportive environment.The good news is that this support continues after you graduate.
