Welsh

Our degree scheme for beginners will give you the expertise and confidence not only to become fluent as a speaker, reader and writer of Welsh, but to progress to a full Honours degree in the subject at the same level as native speakers.
By studying for a BA in Welsh (Beginners) with us, you will be part of the oldest and largest of Wales’s Welsh Departments. The Department’s active community of students and researchers share a vision: to promote a wider understanding of the Welsh language and the other Celtic languages, their history, their literature and their place in the modern world. The Department’s current undergraduates are among the founder members of the Association of Celtic Students of Ireland and Britain, which held its second annual conference in Aberystwyth in March 2014. The breadth of experience and expertise of our staff means that we can offer a wide range of engaging courses that will also prepare you for a rewarding career. You will be taught in small friendly groups by experts in their field.
