Exciting new opportunity to study Social Policy through the Medium of Welsh offered

A new and exciting opportunity to study Social Policy at postgraduate level through the medium of Welsh is being offered by the School of Social Sciences.

The Scholarship, which starts on 1 October 2011, is funded by Y Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol.   It is one of six such Scholarships awarded to Bangor University- postgraduate students having already been recruited to study other topics across the University.

Full information regarding this opportunity is available here.

The School of Social Sciences has 38 full time academic staff members who teach and research in a wide variety of fields. Further information about the School and the research interests of staff members are available on its web site .

This new studentship is part of the University’s recent success in winning funding from Y Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol for nine full time lectureship posts- to lecture in new fields previously unavailable in the Welsh language and six Welsh medium PhD Scholarships.

The Scholarships and lectureships reflect Bangor University’s commitment to Welsh medium higher education. Bangor University is the leading provider of Welsh medium education in Wales and encourages bilingual provision across the institution
