Lauren Lewis, BSc Adult Nursing
What did you do prior to studying at Swansea University?
I went to college and completed a BTEC Health and Care Extended Diploma level 3 which took me two years and I came out with triple distinction one star.
How did you feel when you entered the clearing process?
I was gutted. I felt although I wasn’t good enough to get into any university as I wasn’t chosen to get into my first or second choice.
Why did you choose Swansea University after going through the clearing process?
I chose Swansea university because it is where I live and my family and my friends and job were all here.
What would you say to other students going through the same thing?
Not to worry and that it all happens for a reason. As where ever you decide to go you will make the most out of your experience.
What’s been your highlight whilst studying at Swansea University?
My highlight of studying at Swansea University would be getting a first in one of my assignments! I was absolutely over the moon.
What’s been your favourite part of the course so far?
Going on different nursing placements allowing us to experience what life is going to be like as a qualified nurse.
What are your plans/hopes for the future?
My plans for the future are to qualify as a nurse and hopefully get a job in the burns unit in Morrison hospital before getting enough experience to move aboard and work in a hospital.
Would you recommend Swansea University to other students?
Yes I would definitely recommended Swansea University to other students as all the lectures are fair and friendly, there are many resources that can be used to help and support you throughout the course and also it is right next to the beach. What more could you want!
