Make an impact Make Waves

Wave is Swansea University’s exclusive crowdfunding platform. It enables current students and members of the University to crowdfund their imagination, develop their interests and pursue creative and innovative projects and ideas. These projects and ideas will make an impact across the institution and the wider community.

Wave gives you the control to make a difference. Whether you are a student, member of a team or a member of staff, Wave can help you make an impact one donation at a time.

What kinds of projects are suitable for Wave?

Almost all projects are suitable for Wave. They should focus on the benefit they will provide to students, the University or the wider community. There are a few rules – check out our guidelines here to make sure your project is suitable.

Crowdfunding can be really simple, fast and effective when done properly – but the success of your project depends on you. We review all projects for suitability, judging them on the quality of the presentation of the projects, their goals, and the level of organisation and commitment demonstrated by the teams behind them. The more dedicated creative and organised you and your team are, the more successful your project is likely to be, and the more fun you will have!
