Studying through the medium of Welsh

female student in Welsh-medium seminar

Aberystwyth University offers a high level of provision for students to study through the medium of Welsh - one of the highest in Wales.

Here in the Department of Law and Criminology, we offer a number of degree schemes through the medium of Welsh, in both Law and Criminology.

On our LLB and BA degree programmes in Law, you can study the required number of credits through the medium of Welsh to be eligible for certain Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol scholarships. Please see Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol financial support for further information.

Most of the modules on LLB Y Gyfraith (Law) M100 and BA Y Gyfraith (Law) M103 can be studied through the medium of Welsh.

On our Criminology degree scheme and our two-year LLB course, a total of 40 out of 120 credits in every year are available through the medium of Welsh. This will enable you to apply for the University's Welsh-medium scholarships as well as Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol scholarships. Find out more about our Welsh Medium Scholarships.

Criminology or Troseddeg at Aberystwyth offers more Welsh medium credits than any other University in Wales. For example, the whole of your first year could be completed through the medium of Welsh. The course is continually developing and our modules are designed to reflect the discipline in Wales, offering a Wales centred approach to Criminology or Troseddeg. Our module Trosedd yn y Gymru Gyfoes (Crime in Contemporary Wales) is a good example of this.

There are many advantages to studying your course partly or entirely through the medium of Welsh. Not only will you be a part of a Welsh-speaking community, but you will also develop a close working relationship with your lecturers and fellow students as well as developing bilingual skills which will be advantageous when searching for employment. You will also be allocated a Welsh-speaking Personal Tutor and have a right to a number of services in your preferred language.
