Swansea is such a great place to live! There are student nights on all the time. Head down the legendary Wind Street for an instant great night out! The campus feels really modern and up to date, and the teachers are very helpful and accommodating. The town has a gorgeous beach when the weather perks up and there are some good shops about too – just be careful of the cabbies, they like to take the mick out of freshers…

    If you are looking for a somewhat quiet, not a mainstream city university then the University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s is for you. It has an amazing range of courses to offer and within that course a huge range of modules to pick.

    10/10 I am really enjoying myself and I suffer with anxiety so takes me a while to settle in to places, especially when they are so big! But I have settled in extremely well and quickly here.
