Best in Wales

21 May 2019

The School of Welsh’s position as one of the most prominent and successful Celtic Studies departments in the United Kingdom has been cemented in the 2020 Complete University Guide.

The School rose to take the top spot in Wales, and fourth in the UK, for Celtic Studies – climbing one place from 2018’s rankings.

“It’s fantastic to see these latest rankings recognise our research and teaching excellence and the success of our graduates in the job market. This is a reflection of the collective hard work of our staff and our students – it’s a great time to study Welsh here at Cardiff University.”

Dr Dylan Foster Evans Head of School

This latest result corresponds to the findings of other assessments of the School of Welsh’s quality. In the most recent Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide (2019), the School achieved third place for Celtic Studies.
