How do you feel about winning this scholarship?
I felt so delighted! It greatly reduced my financial burden, gave me peace of mind, and also allowed me to pursue my educational dreams.

Why did you choose to study at Swansea University?
Swansea University is the only university with the course curriculum that exactly fits into my requirements. Most UK universities either take Business Analytics or Management degree separately but at Swansea University, I am sure to receive a blend of both with Masters in Management (Business Analytics), thereby making Swansea University a complete match of my kind of school as highlighted on my checklist.

Can you tell us about your course?
It’s a management course with Business Analytics as an area of specialization. It is committed to impacting specialist skills and soft skills which are important in influencing people and organisations.

What are your three favourite things about Swansea?
The first thing I love most about Swansea is the people. Everyone is really friendly and helpful when getting around. Secondly, Swansea is one of the safest cities in Britain and thirdly, the city possesses astonishing tourist views such as the unique seafront at the Bay Campus where my department is located.

What are your plans for the future?
My future plans are to gain industry experience to strengthen my analytical skills, establish my own company and help people to grow.

What support or facilities have you found particularly useful as an international student?
I will say SOM Employability. They’ve been supportive right from day one at Swansea University. They always send us emails to ensure we don’t miss out on any career events that will benefit us as well as job vacancies.

Would you recommend Swansea University to other international students? 
I would recommend Swansea University because it’s the best university in Wales in terms of graduate prospects, also the lecturers and staff of the university are very supportive and friendly.
