Why study your degree through the medium of Welsh?
Scientist, playwright, lawyer, nurse or musician the Welsh language can open all sorts of doors for you in the future, both in Wales and beyond.
The study options have increased significantly during recent years, and you will be able to study your entire degree course or part of it through the medium of Welsh in traditional academic areas as well as in areas of a more vocational nature.
There are hundreds of degree courses that can be studied through the medium of Welsh across a wide range of subjects – from Social Work to Law, from Business and Management to Childcare, from Welsh History to Mathematics and Physics. Studying your course, or part of your course through the medium of Welsh offers you very valuable experiences as a student including opportunities to specialise in your subject, expand your horizons, embrace new challenges and make new friends for life. These are all part of the experience of obtaining an outstanding academic qualification at one of Wales’ universities.
In light of the Welsh language’s official status in Wales, having bilingual skills is more important than ever, especially as so many businesses and workplaces wish to employ graduates able to work confidently in both languages.
