The system there is more based on an individual level. I was expected to do more on my own without being told.

I learned so much about the culture. My expectations were succeeded and it was helpful to live with students.

Go to tesco and cook for yourself and housemates. It helps to share :)

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Trips to Europe were unforgettable.

Received emails about any crime but overall, Swansea was a very peaceful city.
