Global Advancement (formerly MRID)

We promote and advance Swansea University’s excellent reputation and achievements to our stakeholders in the UK and Worldwide.

Global Advancement (GA) is the home of the recruitment and admissions, marketing and communications, fundraising and development, and International teams.   Each team brings its own professional expertise and specialisms, with a creative approach that is strongly evidenced based. GA teams work closely together, across teams in the entire University, and with external partners to deliver outstanding results.

The Directorate underpins the University’s mission in Research, Teaching and Commercialisation and its strategic plan in both attracting the best future students and promoting our excellence in teaching and research.

Global Advancement teams have won numerous awards and the Directorate was awarded Gold on our first submission to the Investors in People, and shortlisted for Best Newcomer and Excellence in Leadership and Management.  GA also holds the Cabinet Office’s Customer Service Excellence Award.
