'I made the best decision of my life in 2014 when I decided to transfer to Swansea University to study Media and Communications; I’m studying a subject I’m passionate about in a city I love. Swansea itself is vibrant and busy with long beaches and plenty to experience, I feel so lucky to live here. Not only do you have everything on your doorstep as a student, you’re also treated to friendly peers and staff who will go out of their way to make sure you succeed. This is my second and final year at Swansea as an undergraduate and since moving here I’ve been offered so many opportunities; not only are my grades improving but also my experiences. I’ve undergone two internships whilst studying which have really improved my confidence in what my future goals are and in myself. I’ve also had the chance to volunteer with a charity based in the university, who have given me the chance to be a trustee and to experience a month in Zambia volunteering. My course and subject lecturers are brilliant; I never thought I’d be able to openly say that I enjoy writing essays or attending lectures. The great thing about the campus is that everything you need is there; lecturers have hours to lend you for guidance, there are dedicated teams of people to help you with any issues, the library is mind-blowing and there’s even a shop, a theatre, a bar and a club… what more could a student need? Which is why I’m in the process of applying to do a master’s degree here, I don’t want to leave.'
