Even though I knew nothing about computer science when I started, the lecturers were very helpful as were my classmates. The lecturers were also very approachable, and it felt more like friend-to-friend conversations as opposed to teacher/student. I'd advise all students to make the most of their time off in the summer and get some experience through internships or similar jobs. I did this, and it led to me receiving a few job offers before I'd even finished university." -- Casey Denner, MEng Computing**We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University.
