- BSc Accounting and Finance
Why did you choose Swansea University?
Swansea University was at the top of my list as it ticked so many of my boxes. On a personal, lifestyle level, there were so many things that attracted me. The campus’ close proximity to a beautiful beach, the personable and supportive communications I had received during my application process and also the great things I had heard from a friend that had also studied there.
On an academic level, I was so impressed by its rankings. Over the past few years, the University has grown from strength to strength.
I was also so pleased to have received the Excellence Scholarship to study at the University too.
What do you love about the University?
The amount of opportunities it has provided me with, in addition to my studies. I am proud to be a senior student ambassador, where I support prospective students with any questions they may have during University visits and Open Days. I’m also part of the Investment and Finance society and Christian Union; there are lots of opportunities to meet like-minded people.
I’m also an official Swansea University Vlogger which is great fun. Documenting my time at University isn’t just a great experience but also a great way of capturing all the memories I’m making during my time here.
What do you love about your course?
Staff are so supportive and are always available to help. The variety of modules is also great and allows me to focus on what I’m interested in. I particularly enjoy the Entrepreneurship module which helps with the management of Eve Zimbabwe.
The course is great at mixing theory with real-world examples, which makes me feel confident ahead of entering the world of work.
Being able to do a year in industry as part of my degree is also an incredible opportunity. Working for a business for a year, as part of my studies is priceless and experience that I wouldn’t have been able to achieve without doing this degree pathway.
