CAPS ’19 is a fantastic opportunity to expand your current knowledge of physics, find out where your degree can take you, present your hard work, and most importantly have fun and meet your peers from across the country. With lectures from the best of Welsh research, along with the strong presence of physics and astronomy here in the Wales, this year should prove to be the best CAPS so far.

Three Cliffs Bay
The Gower Peninsula is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Apart from the university, itself a notable historical monument and pride of the locals having won the 'Welsh University of the Year' award multiple times, Swansea offers diverse and stunning scenery. The Gower Peninsula to the west was the first area in the United Kingdom to be designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Swansea has numerous urban and country parklands. The region has featured regularly in the 'Wales in Bloom' awards.
The geology of the land creates a natural harbour and it is believed that the city was once developed as a Viking trading post.
