Why did you choose to study at Swansea University?

I searched many universities in the world and Swansea University was one of the best choices to study in. Furthermore, our ministry of health selected Swansea University as one of the best universities for us to study in. 

Can you tell us about your course?

Our course is Professional nursing studies which is designed to get the first degree in nursing. The course is designed to be enjoyable. I like the way that modules are delivered, it is interesting and motivating. Also, the course topics are well organised, so as we are moving through the course, there is a strong like between each module and the next module.

What’s been your highlight whilst studying at Swansea University?

The well-organised course is really amazing. The interaction between students and the tutors or module leaders is excellent and help has been ready and available any time. The learning resources are of high quality and I can access most of them from my home, through the web page of the university. The university's location and environment is healthy. I like walking on the beach to the university. Singleton Park, which is attached to the university, is an amazing place to walk and enjoy the peace and relax after the study day. 

What are your plans for the future?

My plan is to go home and serve my country. It is a pleasure to work in my home country Oman. I plan to develop the nursing profession in Oman by applying the knowledge and skills which I have gained from this experience in UK. 

How will your studies help you pursue your chosen profession?

The study will add a lot of knowledge and skills to my current base of knowledge and skills. I have more confidence to practice what I already know.

Would you recommend Swansea University to other students? 

The experience in Swansea University is an experience for life. I strongly recommended Swansea University to everyone.
