Niamh Johnson

English Language and Linguistics BA (Hons)

I think one of the big highlights of my time at York St John University has been my interactions with the staff and my lecturers. Unlike my experiences with high school and sixth form, I found that the lecturers within my school are so down to earth and just willing to chat about anything and everything.
