Y Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol

Translated, the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol means 'National Welsh College'. It is generally known, however, by its Welsh language title. Its main aim is to increase, develop and broaden the range of Welsh medium study opportunities at universities in Wales.

It is a national body which plays a key role in planning, supporting and developing Welsh medium education and scholarships at universities in Wales.
