Why did you choose USW? I liked the campus and the previous students’ comments. And because it’s in Wales and this country is absolutely lovely.
What do you think about your campus location? Good, it’s relatively close to Cardiff.
Were you happy with the support available to you e.g. Immigration and International Student Advice
The Immigration and International Student Advice team really helped me feel welcome even before I arrived here. They organized trips to some places in the UK and were always available to help me.
Where do you live and do you like your Accommodation?
I spent my year on campus in Treforest at Glamorgan Court. The rooms are really good, having your own bathroom is also really helpful.
What has been your best experience at USW so far?
Getting to know a lot of international people, it’s amazing how people can be so different. I’ve made some really close friends and we had a great time together.
Have you done any travelling while you’ve been studying with us? If so, where did you go?
Yes, I travelled a lot! I went to France, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain, Morocco, Italy and Portugal. Travelling to Europe from the UK is relatively easy and cheap. If you book your tickets in advance, you can get some good deals. You can go to Paris i.e. by bus or plane, for about £30 the round trip, which is really cheap. You can even go to Russia, that is pretty far away, for about £50 if you’re lucky.
What do you think about Wales? I love it! Definitely would live here for the rest of my life. Welsh people are so nice, helpful and funny!
What advice would you give to any students who are thinking of studying at USW? You won’t regret it! Facilities, courses and staff are amazing, you’ll feel at home here!
