“I am currently on the HR Graduate scheme at Tata Steel, Port Talbot works, having joined in September 2015. Prior to this, I taught English in China for a year and worked as a 1:1 English tutor at a local school in the UK.
Beyond the technical elements of my degree, I feel that my studies at Swansea University developed a broad range of valuable workplace skills, including presenting, time management and data analysis. These skills have undoubtedly supported me in applying for, and becoming successful in, a number of roles following graduation.”

"Every lecturer is very approachable and helpful. You can just go to their office hours and ask for help if you’re stuck on an assignment and they will do everything they can to help you. They’re also very knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects, which in turn inspires and motivates students."
Anina Kinzel, BA English Language
"My undergraduate degree at Swansea University has been extremely beneficial to me in gaining a place on a Speech and Language Therapy course. Several modules that I studied are very similar to the modules that I will be studying in September and so it will give me a great advantage. I also believe that having a degree in English Language has contributed to me gaining a place on the SLT course as places are very limited and competitive."
