Jaspal Singh

Language and Communication Research (MA)

“Coming to Cardiff was one of the best decisions I took in my life. I am enrolled in a 1+3 programme at the Centre for Language and Communication Research. This programme begins with an intense one-year taught MA component and leads on to a three-year PhD research phase. The MA gave me a sound basis of knowledge, as well as a degree of confidence, on which I could generate ideas to take my studies further to my PhD project, which I have just started. The training I received during the MA component facilitated me with essential research skills, key readings of my field and numerous great discussions with staff and fellow students. The high proportion of international and mature students at postgraduate level acquainted me with a range of research traditions, cultural perspectives and languages – which are always fun to discuss and discover together. The members of staff at the Centre are all very approachable and took a great deal of time to support me; but they also gave me enough freedom to explore topics and methodologies on my own. I would say that this trust in their students, combined with their highly acclaimed expertise in and dedication to their respective fields, makes the staff at the Centre so exceptional and the experience of studying at Cardiff so stimulating and intense.”
