About us

We at the Cardiff Branch of Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol are responsible for developing Welsh medium education in the University.

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

What we do

We increase the opportunities available to students to study university courses through the medium of Welsh. Student members can take part in academic meetings to express their views on this provision and help its development.

We also support students to study through the medium of Welsh and arrange social activities.

Studying in Welsh at Cardiff

The University attracts a large number of Welsh speaking students from all parts of Wales. It is certainly appealing to live in Cardiff, but we also have a wide choice of undergraduate courses, including our specialties in Healthcare Sciences, Dentistry, Medicine and Journalism.

Cardiff University is committed to providing a sustainable portfolio of Welsh medium education, through which to develop highly skilled graduates with the ability to contribute bilingually to Welsh economic, social and cultural life.
