Did you attend an open day?

Nah, I didn’t go to an Open day – I just applied through UCAS

What made you choose UWTSD Carmarthen?

I would say because of it’s Location and the Course itself, it was very specific to what I wanted to do.

Yeah I do, Essex actually

What do you think of the town life here?

It’s Small and Unique but at the same time pretty cute!

Do you think there is enough to do?

Do you enjoy your time in residence?

Yeah it’s a good laugh, always something happening!

What is your best memory of the course? (Eg, Course, Trip, Study abroad)

For me, it would be the amount of practical teaching sessions and experiences I have been able to be part of.
