Michelle Hatch, Medical Engineering student from Texas, USA

Michelle Hatch case study (incoming student)

Studying abroad was one of the best decisions I have made in my university career. As part of a reciprocal exchange program between Texas A&M University and Swansea University, I was able to study in Wales easily and affordably. As an American in the U.K., I was constantly forced to explain to others why I believed or behaved in a certain way, causing me to question my way of life 

'Swansea has become like my second home'

and mold a personal set of values, standards, and beliefs. Every day in this foreign experience was unpredictable and a lesson in its own; from learning how to wave down a bus, to sharing a flat with 6 other students, to enjoying a Sunday roast, I was fully immersed in the British lifestyle. In addition to personal growth and depth, I formed bonds with my flatmates, coursemates, and fellow international students that I trust will stand the tests of time and distance. The medical engineering courses I took were interesting and stimulating. I was also part of the dance society and had the opportunity to perform in their spring show, Inspire. Swansea has become like my second home, and I know I will be back one day soon.
