“I loved how Swansea felt as a university and I loved how close it was to my family. I remember going to the open day while I was still doing my A-Levels, and my dad and I agreed it just felt like a second home to me almost immediately. It still does today almost three years later. 

Psychology sets you up so well for a huge range of possible futures. That’s amazing to me! From the biology of the brain to social aspects of society...psychology covers it all.

Studying during the pandemic has definitely been challenging. It has had its advantages and online assessments absolutely suit my learning style better than traditional exams. But keeping motivated and feeling like you’re part of the university experience online was hard. I think Swansea did (and is still doing) a great job at adapting to the change and accommodating for a truly difficult couple years.

After I graduate, I’m planning to get some experience and volunteer work within the psychology sector, hopefully involving children and vulnerable adults. Then, after a couple of years, I plan to do my master’s.

I would definitely recommend Swansea University to other students. It has an amazing feel as a university. There’s such a pull to love it, and the university itself is great for so many things. My friends and I have big love for this place.”
