Bangor University’s Welsh Language Policy

Bangor University has developed a comprehensive Welsh Language Policy. The policy outlines the 10 Principles of the University’s engagement with the Welsh Language. It also details how the University ensures that the Welsh language is central to its strategy and operation in relation to:

  • academic provision,
  • services,
  • use of Welsh by staff,
  • policy and project development and record keeping.

A Quick Guide is also available.

Bangor University’s Welsh Language Policy enables the University to achieve its strategic aim of being a bilingual organisation that contributes proactively to the development of the Welsh language and bilingual agenda in the University, the surrounding area, nationally and internationally. The policy also allows the University to implement the Welsh Language Standards placed on us by the Welsh Language Commissioner.

The Welsh Language Standards and the University’s Welsh Language Policy displaces our Welsh Language Scheme.

Please contact us if you have any Comments or Complaints relating to the University’s Welsh Language Policy or out implementation of the Welsh Language Standards.
