The teaching staff without a doubt. This sort of teaching approach is new to me, but I'm totally enjoying it. The friendly nature of the lecturers and the urge to answer every question, no matter how basic or silly, is something I've come to admire.
What are you hoping to achieve by completing this Master’s degree?
I always wanted to get into management and administration, so this was the perfect course for me considering my previous work experience.

I've also slowly started to develop a penchant for critically analysing every piece of work I read.

I also believe the knowledge and skills I acquire here will give me credibility and immense confidence in my future career.
How does this Master’s degree fit in with your future career plans?

Would you recommend Swansea University to other students? Why?
Yes, absolutely. In fact, I've already done so to a few of my peers back home. The professional and cordial attitude of the faculty and the university's robust infrastructure is what I will base my recommendations on. Also, a special mention to the university's student support services. They do an excellent job.
