Where can a degree in Welsh take you?
Graduating in Welsh has been extremely beneficial to me. The degree has enriched my Welsh as I present on BBC Radio Cymru and I’m very grateful to the University for that. As well as presenting, I’m training to be a secondary school Welsh teacher and I’m enjoying it very much. I would recommend studying a degree in Welsh to anyone because it has something for everyone. I enjoyed studying the Mabinogi, the history of the language, the history of Patagonia, and our literary greats such as Saunders Lewis, Kate Roberts and D.J. Williams. It is a course that introduces to us the history of our country across the centuries and I expanded my understanding of our language and our culture.
