For students

Coleg Cymraeg student

Every Coleg member is automatically a Branch member.

Coleg membership is available for any student studying in a higher education institution in Wales who wishes to join.

If you're studying a module that's supported by the Coleg, which is offered via the online learning resource, (similar to Blackboard) Y Porth, you'll need to join as soon as possible.

Why join?

Coleg membership gives students access to additional resources in their first language like Y Porth which is an extremely useful online resource.
