Student Quote

 “An as International from India, studying abroad at Swansea has been the most remarkable experience. The International office and Departments at the university are supportive and friendly and what makes it unique is that they actually care. Swansea city is not only beautiful and soothing, but the people here are welcoming and greatly reassuring in all your endeavours. I thoroughly enjoyed studying the Masters in Digital Media. The course and its Faculty have broadened my horizon not only in New Media but other subjects such as Computer Science and Politics & International Relations. If I haven’t yet succeeded in making the reader envious and inspired to take this course, I would only conclude by mentioning that you would miss out on lectures worth experiencing.“
