Prior to studying at Swansea University, Laura was an undergraduate student studying Biology in University of Oviedo in Spain.  We caught up with Laura to find out about her studying experience at Swansea University...

Why did you choose to study at Swansea University?

I studied the last semester of my bachelor’s degree at Swansea University. I really enjoyed living there as well as attending the university, which is amongst the best in the UK, so I decided to come back to do my Master’s. 

Can you tell us about your course?

Research Methods in Psychology is a very research-focused course that allows you to explore very different areas of Psychology. During the year you conduct several independent projects, although the invaluable help of the fantastic lecturers is always needed.

What part of the course did you enjoy the most?

I enjoyed every part of the course, I would highlight the final project since it has been one of the biggest challenges I have had to face, I have finished it with great success.

What’s been your highlight whilst studying at Swansea University?

I would highlight the staff, the other students, and of course the lovely city of Swansea.

What are your plans for the future?

I am currently studying a masters in marketing in Madrid and I am hoping to develop a career in marketing for pharmaceutical companies. 

How will your studies help you pursue your chosen profession?

I am sure my Masters will help me pursue my goal, since neuromarketing is very important nowadays.

Would you recommend Swansea University to other students? 

I would recommend Swansea University, since studying there helped me not only to define my goals in life but to grow as a person.
