Top 3 for Celtic Studies

17 October 2018

Cardiff University’s School of Welsh has climbed two positions to third place for Celtic Studies in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.

Dr Dylan Foster Evans, Head of the School of Welsh at Cardiff University, said:

“This is an excellent result and an endorsement of the quality of our teaching and innovative research in the Welsh discipline."

He continued: “It also reflects how external reports show that our students appreciate the high-level of teaching they receive from us. However, we won’t be resting on our laurels. We will continue to develop our teaching provision and our research which is having a real impact on the Welsh language and Welsh culture.”

This result complements other assessments of the School’s quality. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), it was ranked 7th for research quality and 1st for impact (in the Modern Languages and Linguistics unit of assessment) and this year achieved 100% for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS 2018).
