"Swansea is a very welcoming place and a peaceful city. I met new friends from different countries around the world which allowed me to learn foreign languages, try different traditional food, and improve my cross-cultural communication skills."

"I am impressed by how the lecturers have office hours where you can go and talk to them about anything, not necessarily lectures related but any student is able to explore their ambitions"
