Join us to hear more about UWTSD's Welsh-medium courses!
Welsh-medium and bilingual courses are offered across UWTSD’s campuses in Wales. We offer opportunities for students who are fluent as well as those who are less confident or who are learners. Undergraduate provision ranges from courses that offer some modules through the medium of Welsh, to others where the full course can be studied through the medium of Welsh. It is possible for you to study modules through the medium of Welsh even if you are studying a course through the medium of English.
The University prides itself on its Welsh-speaking community and gives every support to our students to study through the medium of Welsh. Studying through the medium of Welsh at the University will provide an excellent foundation for your career and there is a great demand for young professionals who can work bilingually. Did you know that bilingual careers salaries are higher on average? In addition, many of our undergraduate courses are eligible for Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol Scholarships, worth up to £3,000.
Join our Virtual Open Evening on February 25th to hear more about what the University has to offer and a taster session of your chosen course.
