Studying Adult Nursing at Swansea University – International Students

August 22, 2019 2 By Stanley Isaacs


Hi I’m Anna Paul and I’m Alisha Anil. We are doing adult nursing at Swansea University. One of my cousins she did her nursing in
Wales and she encouraged me to come over here and do my nursing. In my case
I think Swansea is one off the top hundred universities in the world,
it’s one of the top-ranked in Wales as well so that’s why I just picked Swansea University for my nursing training. What I enjoy the most about this course is my
placements: So in a year we do have three placements and we go out on community as well as on hospital wards: it’s kind of preparing us for the job as well as
getting us experience in communicating with others, interacting with the
patients, getting more friendly with people from all cultures. I like both
lectures and placements in uni but I like to go for placements because I
think that’s the most important part of my job, I think it makes me more
confident and competent. I think the lectures are really good they try to make our
classes really interesting. I love Swansea because I love the beaches and I love the parks as well. I think we are really close to the city centre as well
so we go there to enjoy shopping. I think I’ve got loads of memorable
moments but I think it’s when patients get discharged from the hospital ward they
usually give us a small smile or say great thank you for taking care of them
so I think that’s that’s the greatest gift which I can get. Whenever they say that oh you you will make a really good nurse in the future it’s
kind of really encouraging. When I qualify as a nurse
I’m really looking forward to work as a nurse in one of the hospitals in the UK
itself. In the future I would also like to specialize in some of the subjects as
well so I would definitely say that I will choose Swansea University to do my
future training. I find it really positive that 100% of the nursing
students who are graduating from Swansea University are getting jobs in their
respective fields so that’s a really encouraging part of the course. Since I
came from India to Swansea University I’ve been able to meet quite a lot of
friends. Students from my course as well as from the Indian community. Yeah we got a nice little bunch of students in our cohort. They’re really helpful and they won’t
consider me and Alisha as like international students they’re like
part of our family. I never thought I would make this many friends here.
