The Coleg and us

The Cardiff branch is an integral part of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol and the development of Welsh medium education in the University. 

Translated, the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol means 'National Welsh College'. It is known however by its Welsh language title.

Our Branch's main responsibilities include:

  • discussing national developments and feeding recommendations via the Branch's representative to the Academic Board
  • considering Cardiff University's plans for developing Welsh medium education.
  • presenting requirements, when appropriate, to the Education and Students Policy Network and other University committees.

Cardiff University's intention is to increase its Welsh language provision and by doing this, ensuring that its students can contribute to the social and economic benefit of Wales.

Our role

Our Branch will promote, monitor and advise Academic Schools in the three Colleges across the University on the institution's Welsh medium provision. We'll prepare comprehensive and timely information about the Coleg's funding opportunities. We will also let our members know about any opportunities that correspond to the University's Welsh medium education strategy. Our intention is to increase the percentage of students that study through the medium of Welsh. Find out more about our Welsh language provision by watching our video with English subtitles on youtube.

We have a responsibility to promote Coleg membership among students and staff. By registering in the Coleg, you are a member of the Branch. We meet three times a year and ensure that we make our presence known within the institution. We are the natural meeting point for students and staff.
