The Applied Linguistics Department offers both single and joint honours degree programmes. One of our students, Jasmine Metcalfe, recently graduated with a first class degree in English Language and Literature. During her degree, Jasmine went on a year abroad to Brock University, Canada and she took the CELTA certificate during her summer vacation. Jasmine is now considering a career in teaching. Here, she shares her experience of studying at Swansea University, including support offered for students.
