16 Things You Learn To Love About Studying In Swansea

There’s a lot to love about studying in Swansea.

1. It’s cheap, yet it has so much to offer.

Rent is relatively affordable for a city and a great night out is completely achievable with £10.

5. Being able to see Swansea Bay from your lecture hall.

Where you’ll witness what actual physical activity looks like, though it might make you feel incredibly guilty about that whole packet of Tesco Value biscuits you just ate. 😅

6. Or venturing over to Rhossili and Caswell Bay.

Even if you usually only go there when you’ve been incredibly misled by a glimpse of sunshine that will turn into a monsoon as soon as you try to sunbathe.

9. Everything about the way Welsh people speak.

The accent and the dialect are lush. Just don’t attempt to pronounce ‘Llanelli’ in front of them.

10. The legendary Uplands Diner.

It’s what dreams are made of. And it’s also where you replace your hangover with high cholesterol and diabetes.

So this happened earlier🙋🏻
