HYWEL EVANS MPhys Physics graduate
“I finished my MPhys Physics integrated master’s degree and decided to stay in Swansea for a PhD working in an antimatter laboratory. I was successful in obtaining a bursary which funded my studies and worked as a Postgraduate Demonstrator for teaching experience, which also brought in additional funds. Being a postgraduate researcher is similar to being in employment and required more time commitment than my undergraduate studies and it’s good preparation for full-time employment. I have learnt a lot of practical skills, alongside presenting to specialists at conferences around the world (Belfast, Dundee, Geneva and Belgrade). This has improved my abilities and helped me to be successful at job interviews for when I’m finished. Swansea University had all the tools I needed to succeed academically and is so close to great parks and beaches – I didn’t want to study anywhere else”.
HOPE HENRY Applied Medical Sciences graduate “Following my undergraduate degree at Swansea in Applied Medical Sciences, staying to study Graduate Entry Medicine seemed like my natural next step. During my undergrad, Swansea had been incredible, with such a friendly community of staff and students and with access to a plethora of support services and social opportunities, including societies and volunteering. Swansea University also has such stunning surroundings with gorgeous beaches on our doorstep that really are second to none, especially with the close proximity to the Mumbles, Three Cliffs, Langland, Caswell and Bracelet Bay. Swansea sports, a great student life, encouraging balancing academia with exploring its idyllic settings and excellent nightlife, which coupled with the Medical School’s incredible reputation had me sold for another four years. Staying at Swansea was a no brainer. I love it here and it feels like home so why would I want to go anywhere else ? ”
