Studying through the medium of Welsh

All of our undergraduate degree schemes can be studied partly through the medium of Welsh. For some degree schemes, more than half the modules are available through the medium of Welsh. 

You may choose to present all your coursework, including assignments and oral presentations, through the medium of Welsh and complete your written examinations in Welsh, regardless of the module’s medium of instruction. The Department also ensures that all Welsh-speaking students are allocated a personal tutor and dissertation tutor who can speak the language. These teaching arrangements mean that our Welsh-medium provision is open to students from a range of different Welsh language backgrounds. 

Studying through the medium of Welsh is advantageous in many ways. These advantages include: 

  • increased job prospects 
  • being taught in smaller groups 
  • being part of a friendly and welcoming Welsh-speaking community. 

All students studying Welsh-medium modules will also be eligible for the University’s Welsh-medium study scholarship, worth up to £250 per year. Furthermore, many of our degree courses are eligible for Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol undergraduate scholarships worth £1500 over three years. For more information about these scholarships and for a list of the eligible degree schemes please see the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol website
