Improving Welsh for Students

Improving Welsh

The Coleg Cymraeg's Welsh Language Skills tutor is located in the Centre for Welsh Language Services, Ursula Byrne. Ursula prepares students for the exams of the Coleg Cymraeg's Welsh Language Skills Certificate. You can contact Ursula at  uub@aber.ac.uk x2684.

The Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol has developed a Language Skills Certificate in order to recognise the importance of Welsh language skills amongst students who are studying at Welsh universities.

The aim of the Certificate is to provide a common, recognised way for students to demonstrate their linguistic skills, and provide a means for students to show employers their ability to communicate confidently and professionally through the medium of Welsh, both written and oral. 

It is believed that the Certificate will be a means for students to recognise the importance of Welsh language skills, both educationally and in the workplace, and it will be an incentive for students to take advantage of the opportunities to study through the medium of Welsh, and eventually, confidently use the Welsh in the workplace.
