The Egypt Centre has three core functions which are delivered through several Museum services and in which all staff are involved at different levels. The core functions are: * Preservation of the Collection and Collection Management; * Learning and Teaching;  * Widening Participation - 'makes explicit our aim to reach as diverse an audience as possible and to incorporate all groups in the life of the Museum and thus the University. At the same time, those already working within the University are brought into greater co-operation with the wider public'.

'Founded in 1835 by an outstanding group of scientists, technologists and historians who wanted to share and extend their knowledge. Among other things they founded and built what is now Swansea Museum. Today the RISW combines several roles: * We share knowledge across all fields, including history, current issues and science & technology; * We have a special focus on Swansea and its area, especially its local history; * We act as the official Friends of the Swansea Museum. We welcome anyone interested in Swansea and in promoting education and knowledge to join us.'

'The oldest astronomical society in Wales - established 13th February 1948. The aim of the Society has always been "to further the knowledge of and to stimulate public interest in the science of Astronomy, also to promote and conduct research into problems related thereto" and this is as relevant to today's Society as it was in 1948 ... Thursday evening lectures are provided for Swansea Astronomical Society members, however, potential new members or members of other astronomical societies should feel free to come along as a guest.'
