We have a reputation for creating and engaging with research that has a direct impact on society, language, culture and policy in contemporary Wales.

In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) the School achieved the highest possible score (100%) for its impact on the wider world, the only department to achieve this in the Modern Languages and Linguistics unit of assessment across the UK.

We are working with a selection of professional agencies and external stakeholders (in government, the media and the arts) to transform our research in to policy, cultural renaissance and linguistic development.
