I chose to study Photojournalism at the University of South Wales’ Faculty of Creative Industries partially due to the fact that the campus in Cardiff is right in the middle of the city, making it accessible to many different things. The Photojournalism course is really great, run by lecturers who are very enthusiastic about the program.

I have settled in to life here very well. I am really enjoying a great group of friends, social life, as well as my course. It was initially a challenge to have to create new connections and be in a new city, but this also turned out to be a great experience for me.
