Welsh Language Scheme

The Welsh Language Scheme sets out how the University will maintain and develop its bilingual services. It also outlines how the University will implement the principle of equality as set out in section 5 of the 1993 Act by ensuring that members of the public (staff, students, prospective students and the public in Wales) may use Welsh or English according to their individual choice. The Revised Scheme has been divided into sections, as recommended by the Statutory Guidelines.

The Welsh Language Board gave due regard to the nature, size, location and activities of each institution and its relationship with the public in Wales when determining what type of measures would be appropriate to include in the scheme, and it considered what was "appropriate in the circumstances and reasonably practicable". Welsh Language Schemes are developmental documents and Aberystwyth University is working within an agreed timetable towards implementing the principle of equality in the Act so far as is appropriate to the University's activities
