Careers and Employability

Cymrwch olwg ar sut y gallwch chi wella eich cyflogadwyedd wrth astudio ym Mhrifysgol Bangor yma.

Employability and the School of Welsh

It's a very exciting time for graduates leaving University with a qualification in Welsh. With the statutory demand for pupils to study Welsh at school until the age of 16, there is a growing demand for teachers, both primary and secondary, with good qualifications in the subject. Traditionally many of our students, who go on to do research for a postgraduate course, often end up lecturing at colleges and Universities.

Opportunities in Media

There are now many more choices for our graduates than ever before. Since S4C was founded in the early 80s, a number of our students went on to work in the media industry as researchers, producers and TV and Radio presenters, and script writers for popular programmes such as Pobl y Cwm and journalists with BBC and ITV. Others were successful in getting jobs with magazines like Golwg and Barn; while others went on to work as translators with big companies like Y Lolfa, Gwasg Gomer and the Welsh Books Council.

Policy

One of the implications of setting up the Welsh Language Board was that all public services and local authorities were legally obliged to produce a Welsh Language Scheme. Many of our graduates were employed to produce theses new language schemes.

Translation Services

As a result of the National Assembly for Wales opening in Cardiff, there was a growing demand for translators, editors and proof readers with a high standard of Welsh.

Further opportunities

A number of our graduates have also made their mark as successful actors on stage and TV. Others went on to join the police, public services and even priesthood.

In summary, a degree in Welsh gives you a sought after qualification and a number of career paths to choose from.

Employability and the School of Creative Studies and Media

Courses run by the School of Creative Studies and Media offer a number of career paths for you to choose from once you graduate. They emphasise the importance of creative exploration, and actual university-level critical understanding. These things - the ability to be creatively adaptable, consider the tools at hand and apply creative thinking, the importance of innovation and a combination of practical and critical knowledge - make Creative Studies and Media graduates ideal employees or, indeed, creative entrepreneurs in their own businesses.

Creative Studies and Media courses have seen graduates involved in both academe and in industry, including work in:

  • Creative Writing, Professional Writing and Publishing;
  • Performance and the Theatre, both on and behind the stage;
  • Print and/or Broadcast Journalism;
  • Actors, presenters and in television programme production;
  • Advertising and the Marketing industries;
  • Radio, as presenters, as well as in programme production;
  • Digital, Web and New Media production;
  • Multi-media industries.

A number of graduates have likewise continued to Postgraduate study.

Some have followed careers in teaching, lecturing, politics and public relations.
