Bre-Anna King

Researching Methods in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience

Bre-Anna’s Brain Power Secures her a Top PhD Position

Studying at Swansea University in 2017, Bre-Anna King from Ontario, Canada, made a huge impact with her dissertation, which provided her with a fantastic opportunity to return to her home country to study for a PhD at one of the world’s best universities. 

Bre-Anna, a graduate from MSc Research Methods in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience, made an impact on her supervisor, Hana Burianova, who encouraged her to submit her dissertation for publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. 

Since graduating, Bre-Anna secured a PhD position at McMaster University, Canada, which is one of the top 100 universities in the world. She said:

“Although I went for one degree, I was able to complete four different projects with different professors/supervisors in various disciplines. I was able to research what I was passionate about, using techniques (like tDCS) that I never heard of before.

Why Swansea?

“My accommodation was right on the beach – I walked on there almost every day during my studies. Everything I needed was so close: groceries, banking, shopping and the city centre. The campus and city (and Rhossili Beach, in particular) are BEAUTIFUL!

“There was lots of diversity on campus; including many international students. And job prospects were high.”
