Student Profiles

Nothando Tshuma


One of the reasons I chose Swansea was for its cultural diversity. I saw it as an opportunity to meet people from different parts of the world while getting to learn about other backgrounds and people’s diverse experiences. I didn’t get a chance to visit Swansea before enrolling, so all I had were the online student profiles which were very helpful! One of the many great things I love about Swansea University is its geographical location. Swansea is a coastal area and the University is situated just minutes from the beach which is pretty cool considering there are no beaches in Zimbabwe!

Cultural diversity is very much appreciated by the university and is shown by the amount of effort the university puts into welcoming students from different parts of the world. Dinners and lunches are hosted for International Students and this is a great way to integrate people from all cultures. The Students’ Union also plays a great role in organising events to welcome Students.
