A bright future awaits our students.
Our graduates go on to follow a wide variety of careers. These include jobs in marketing, media, politics, language planning, business, youth work, education, translation, administration ... to name just a few.
Work placements are a core part of some of the Welsh Department's modules. We have two modules which focus specifically on gaining experience in a professional workplace, namely ‘Professional Development: Preparation for the Workplace’ (year 2) and ‘Welsh in the Workplace’ (year 3).
We also arrange a variety of paid work placements, as well as voluntary placements, for example:
"During my second year, I had a great opportunity to spend a week at Rhondda Cynon Taff’s Translation Unit. This has undoubtedly confirmed my decision to work as a translator after graduating. I'm now looking forward to spending a week with another translation unit next year, as part of the 'Welsh in the Workplace' module."

"I was fortunate enough recently to work alongside several members of staff on the CorCenCC research project. My role in the project was to collect data by recording conversations with people in the community. This was a great opportunity for me to develop my skills as well as gain experience of working on an academic project. The help, encouragement and support that I received when applying and starting this job was fantastic, and the whole experience was extremely valuable."
