Ross Clarke, BA Spanish Graduate says:
"I chose to study Spanish at Swansea University because the degree offered a range of subjects that suited my interests. I spent my third year teaching English language in a school in Gran Canaria. It was a most exciting and nerve racking experience but I enjoyed every minute of it. I developed my Spanish language skills and also had the opportunity to work and travel. I chose Swansea University because of its location. It is close to the park, the beach and near to a vibrant city centre where there is lots of nightlife. I thoroughly enjoyed studying at Swansea; the course and the year abroad in Gran Canaria have given me a thirst to travel and use the skills and experience I have gained during the past four years. I am now working as a European Recruitment Officer."
