Bilingualism is a natural part of life at Bangor University. This is not much of a surprise considering that Bangor is located in the county with the highest % of Welsh speakers. In fact around 70% of our staff have skills in the Welsh language. It is therefore possible for you to receive support through the medium of Welsh in all aspects of your life as a student here, including the Student Services department.
Academically, you will notice that the Welsh-medium lectures and seminar groups tend to be smaller in size, which means that students tend to feel more comfortable in their surroundings. There is, therefore, a greater opportunity for those students to ask questions of their lecturers and receive a little more support.
We therefore trust that any student who is a Welsh speaker, no matter how fluent, would feel very welcome at Bangor University and that this is the best place for you to use and develop your Welsh language skills.
There are many classes available from the National Centre for Learning Welsh and there are usually pure beginner classes offered in January.
