Azhara De La Vega, Spain

Azahara de la Vega from Spain is studing the MSc Research Methods in Psychology.  Like so many other Swansea students, Azahara was attracted to come and study at the University by the city, the people and of course, by the sea.

Azahara, who is aiming to further her psychology career in the UK, said: “The best thing about studying at Swansea is the opportunity that the University offers me to have a title which will help in the development of my career in an international environment.

“I have been made to feel welcome at Swansea University, from the first moment I felt free to knock any door. Everybody has been friendly and helpful.

“In my field, most of the lectures complete the lessons with stories about their experiences, that is what I like. If you are studying something, the first thing that you want to see is the practical way to use it.”

When asked if she had any advice for future international students, Azahara said: “Do not miss anything; Swansea University is full of resources that will help you as a person, as a student and as a future professional.”
