"I found that the city of Swansea was relaxing and very casual. I learned a lot about British culture from UK flatmates when I was living in student halls, and it was good to practice my English every day.

The Bay Campus accommodation is very nice because it’s brand new, and the sports facilities are very good, I especially enjoyed playing volleyball on the beach. There was very good care for international students and I felt supported. I learned that if you study hard, you will get good grades."

"The staff at Swansea University are very supportive, and I received a lot of 1 on 1 help for things I didn’t understand at first. The lecturers are very energetic and active, and have lots of knowledge. I especially received a lot of help and support from my final project supervisor.

I enjoyed the weather and the beaches in the area. The people in Swansea are friendly, it was weird at first but so nice that strangers say hello and care. It’s been good to start a great career at Arup from my degree at Swansea University."

"The highlight of my Aerospace Engineering degree was designing an aircraft with a team of student from all over the world and flying the aircraft with the Merlin flight simulator

The most valuable skills learnt as a student at Swansea University were communication skills and professional aerospace technical knowledge."
