PhD Student, University of Oxford

What did you enjoy the most about the course and studying at Swansea University?

Without this scholarship I would not have had any time to enjoy my time at Swansea, or may not have managed to come to University at all. Studying at Swansea University has been a pleasure. The past two years have been a wonderful adventure, from discovering some of the Welsh culture, to learning from some of the best lecturers I have ever met.

The thing that really stands out about Swansea is the huge support you get as a student - from absolutely everyone! Whenever I have had problems - whether personal, academic or financial - I have had someone to advise me, to listen to me and to help me.

What are you planning to do after graduating?

After my degree, I want to pursue postgraduate study in Cryptography or Coding Theory. I am very excited about this because my time as student here has definitely prepared me to face the world and to keep working towards my dreams.
