•  Bangor University offers more Welsh-medium modules and courses than any other university.

•  Studying through Welsh can give you a better connection with your lecturers and fellow students as class sizes are usually smaller, allowing you more opportunities to contribute.

•  You can do all or part of your degree through the medium of Welsh in several academic Schools.

The Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol has a course finder tool that indicates how much of your course is available in Welsh.



•  Bilingual people are needed in all types of jobs in Wales.

•  There is a great demand for young professionals who can work bilingually in Wales. 

•  Studying through Welsh at university will provide an excellent foundation for your career.
