Because of its central location, its close knit community, and because its such a wonderful place to live, Aberystwyth attracts students from all parts of Wales. Apart from these great assets, its proximity to other academic institutions such as The National Library and the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies also make it a renowned centre of learning. It is a wonderful place to study. The Department of Welsh at Aberystwyth is the oldest and largest of the departments of Welsh in Wales. Since its establishment, its members (staff and students alike) have made an important contribution to the life and culture of Wales in the fields of scholarship, literature, education, politics and broadcasting.
There is no doubt that it is an exceptional Department. It has substantial staff resources, and this is a distinct advantage for giving students a foundation of expertise in their learning, and in providing a variety of courses. Our aim is to secure a flourishing future for the Department by ensuring that these high academic standards are maintained and, at the same time, that attractive and relevant courses are provided for students of a new millennium.
