Swansea is a really convenient size and it’s easy to find your way around town  without getting overwhelmed. There’s also the scenery, the beach and it’s the surrounding areas of the Brecon Beacons, Pembrokeshire and Snowdonia. I love the fact you can even see the beach from the cafeteria, and the village of Mumbles is amazing! I’ve also met a lot of good people here.

I’m studying Creative Writing and I’m definitely enjoying it. I previously did Ancient & Medieval History (BA) and I can’t speak highly enough about the History teachers; they were very helpful and gave good personal advice, especially with my dissertation. All the lecturers are brilliant in their own way.
