Cheryl Havard - MA in Social Research Methods

Cheryl Havard

Thirty five year old, mother of three, Cheryl Havard graduated with a First Class BA Honours Humanities from the Department of Adult Continuing Education (DACE) in 2016. Having had such a positive experience in her Undergraduate Degree, Cheryl was encouraged to continue her education with a Masters in Social Research Methods.

“With 3 children, it was incredibly difficult to save enough money. I applied for the Swansea University Alumni Scholarship and I was amazed when I was awarded it, it’s been a huge help!”

“I hope to inspire others who like me did not have the opportunity that it doesn’t matter where you come from; education can change your life”
