A truly wonderful place to be. Studying at Swansea gave me the tools I needed to find a fantastic career!

From the first minute until the last- I fell in love with Swnasea. It's a beautiful place, the people are very welcoming and friendly and (most importantly), I wouldn't have been able to do the job I'm currently doing if I hadn't have studied here. I have so much to thank the university for!
