I remember going to lots of different open days when I was deciding where to study, and the Student Ambassadors really affected my opinions.

I chose Swansea University for the great location, especially for a course that has so many field trips, with the Mumbles and Gower on our doorstep, not to mention the beach across the road from the campus. The passion and friendliness of both students and lecturers came across strongly when I visited on an Open Day, which was important in making me feel at home in a new city and included in the great campus community.

I have learnt to become more flexible when arranging plans. Not everything can run smoothly so you have to think on your feet in order to adapt to the situation you are faced with. Being part of the Ambassador Scheme has also taught me better time management skills. Being part of the Student Ambassador Scheme has helped me to organise my time better as you have to be somewhere at a certain time.

There are a few reasons I chose Swansea University. For one, it has excellent teaching across the board and the research conducted here is pushing for the future. The location had its part to play, coming from the Midlands, the beach has never been closer and the nightlife here is something any student will not forget. The Ambassador Scheme has taught me a variety of things such as confidence, dedication and preparation. I am now approachable by anyone and able to help them in a professional and friendly manner.

Friendly, confident and smiley

Whilst there are many things that I have gained from being part of the Student Ambassador Scheme, the main thing that I have learnt is that positivity is key. Talking to potential students and their families may seem daunting at first, but one chat about your ‘Swansea Experience’ could mean the difference of that student going to University or not. Student Ambassadors are the face of the university and they are something that students will remember for a long time.

There were so many reasons why I chose Swansea University.  Right from visiting for an Open Day when I was a Sixth Form student, I've really loved Swansea's friendly feeling and sense of community and so I chose Swansea primarily due to this friendly feeling and relaxing atmosphere. Additionally, I was really impressed with the variety of modules for my course, and the fact that I can choose many of them, personalising my degree to include topics particularly interest me.

Caring, determined and thoughtful

Swansea University instantly had a friendly, welcoming and warming feel about it as both the students and staff were enthusiastic and really helpful. The campus is relatively small with everything you need in one place so I knew I wouldn’t feel too out of my depth. It has great resources to study and carry our research with a gorgeous sandy beach only across the road.

I have learnt that a lot of people just want to ask about life as a student at Swansea which I am able to actually help with!

Being part of the Student Ambassadors from day one of my uni life has really brought out the side of me that loves talking to and getting to know new people. I remember when I was looking round different universities, and the experience on that day really makes a difference to how you see a university. Being one of the Team Leaders gives me a chance to share my experience at Swansea University with new people considering studying here as well as getting to know other students already here in other years and studying other subjects who I might not have met otherwise.
