Student Profiles

“Studying modern languages at Swansea afforded me a career that I would never have thought possible. I cannot stress enough the benefits and positive impact that having language competencies on a CV have on a potential employer. I didn’t realise it at the time, but a language degree can really open doors you never even thought existed. I am now Head of Communications at the Marketing and Communications Department, Formula I, Germany.”- Chris Hughes
