Hindsight is a wonderful thing... Graduates offer words of advice to incoming students


Building on our original 'Hindsight is a wonderful thing...' campaign, alumni followers on LinkedIn have recently take the time to share some of their pearls of wisdom to those starting University this autumn.

Many happy memories - the place was leading the way when I was there some 14 (!!) years ago and looks even better now. Good luck and well done everyone who is going. Ollie Wells, BA (Hons) Product Design,1998-2002

I spent three years at the ATRiuM, and it's an outstanding place to learn, and practice your craft. All the lecturers are great. Good luck everyone! Alexander Jones, BA (Hons) Media Production, 2010-2013

I was here between 1995 and 1998. Get involved with the local community and embrace University life. USW is a good place to study, facilities are second to none and it has a great social side. Network with people who can further your careers. Create positives and make it happen. Its your only way forward. Alun Thomas, BSc (Hons) Building Surveying, 1995-1998

Was there from 1993 to 1997 and loved it. Throw yourself into your studies, explore the different societies and clubs, and get to know your halls of residence neighbours. Elaine McCourt, BSc (Hons) Business Decision Analysis, 1993-1997

Absolutely loved my years here! Be sure to catch world class rugby games at the Millennium Stadium, student discounts go a long way! Make them count. Emma Tsodzai, BSc (Hons) Psychology with Law, Humanitites, 2005-2008
