Robert Tretin, MA in English
"I've had the chance to study with people from Ireland, England, America, and Germany and the differing views and experiences that each of us brings to our classroom discussions have been an invaluable part of my education here. One of the other enormous benefits of studying in Swansea is its location. In few other places can a student read a poem by Dylan Thomas or William Wordsworth and then walk through the same streets and countryside that inspired that poet. At Swansea University a student can find a learning experience that breaks free of the confines of the classroom and that may lead them out into all the beauty and history of the city and its surrounding areas. To top it off the small class sizes create an intimate and informal atmosphere where passionate professors challenge you to make the most of your love of literature. I'd describe my time here at Swansea University as an experience that has both deepened my love of literature while allowing me to come to view it from a more global perspective."
