Studying through the medium of Welsh

The Department of Law and Criminology offers 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 up to 80 credits from a total of 120 credits through the medium of Welsh, which would make you eligible for certain Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol scholarships.  Click here for further information. 

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. Please click here for further information. 

Criminology or Troseddeg at Aberystwyth offers the most Welsh-medium credits out of any other University in Wales.  For example,  the whole of your first year could be completed through the medium of Welsh should you wish to do so.  The course is continually developing and our modules are designed to reflect the discipline in Wales, offering a Wales centered approach to Criminology or Troseddeg. Our module Trosedd yn y Gymru Gyfoes 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.
