Entry Requirements

For the degree in Welsh (single honours) we normally ask for three A-levels (including Welsh)or two A-levels and the Welsh Baccalaureate. Our standard offer for single-honours Welsh is ABB at A-level, including a B grade in Welsh for first language students and an A grade in Welsh for second language students, or AB (including an A grade in Welsh for second language students, and a B grade in Welsh for first language students) and the Welsh Baccalaureate, but every application will be considered on an individual basis.

The standard offers for joint-honours degree schemes vary according to the other subject being studied. Further information may be obtained from the University Prospectus or by contacting the School directly.

Of course, it is now common for different applicants to be studying for a variety of different qualifications. As a result our offers may vary from individual to individual. Indeed, the School is always willing to consider applicants who are studying for qualifications other than the usual A-levels, AS’s and Welsh Bac. In recent years we have accepted students who have offered one or more of the following: A-levels, AS's, the Advanced Vocational Certificate of Education, the International Baccalaureate, and qualifications in Welsh for Adults. But if you have any questions regarding the appropriateness of your qualifications, please get in touch. Special conditions apply for mature students (who can apply on the basis of experience as well as formal qualifications), and the School warmly welcomes such applicants.
