    I'm Welsh, however I've spent most of my life living in Spain and I want to return to my home for University. I've been accepted at both Swansea and Cardiff uni, each conditional offers. However, I want to study English literature and Creative writing, but I have no idea where to go. I'm not entirely sure I'd like to live in a big city for 3 years, plus the rooms are more expensive and smaller- but I believe I'd get bored of being around the 'beach scene' for 3 years. If anyone knows any information about this course in these unis, know anything about their living experiences , and any negatives of both... Let me know!

    Hello, as a English Literature alumni myself there are a few reasons why I chose Swansea and why I enjoyed my course during my 3 years. The course itself has a large variety of modules to pick and choose from. One of my personal (quirky) favourites being Beat poetry! The lecturers during my time inspired me and introduced me to literature that I still love to this day. Follow the link to learn more about what Swansea offers.

    With our location-we are a stones throw away from the beautiful beaches along the gower coastline but with the transport available in Swansea there are plenty of opportunities to explore.

    As a campus university, it is like friendly community. With our selection of societies, student facilities and accommodation options you make memories that will stay with you forever.

    For any information please see our website:
