Cardiff rewards creativity!

10 November 2014

This year the School of Welsh, Cardiff University, is launching a new set of scholarships that will challenge the creativity of prospective students. FiveCreative Minds scholarships, each worth £3,000, will be available to students applying for single or joint honours in Welsh.

To be in with a chance of being awarded a scholarship applicants are asked to demonstrate their creativity in answering the following questions:

  • Why do you want to study Welsh at Cardiff?
  • What makes you a special candidate?
  • Why should the School of Welsh, Cardiff University, choose you?

Applications can be shared in any form e.g. video, podcast, poster, song, PowerPoint presentation, essay or poem. The creativity displayed in the application will be what the judges consider when choosing the winners. This is a fantastic opportunity for candidates to show their personalities and articulate their thoughts and ideas in unique and innovative ways.  

Professor Sioned Davies, Head of Welsh, said: "As a School we want to encourage our students to demonstrate their individual talents beyond the academic sphere, where they have already proved themselves. The BA in Welsh at Cardiff is a challenging and exciting course that combines traditional and contemporary themes while preparing the students for the realities of the working world of a modern Wales."

Dr Rhiannon Marks, Admissions Officer for the School of Welsh, added: "This is the first time we have offered a scholarship such as this and the individual sums available are significantly higher than has been offered through other scholarships in previous years. This is a unique competition which is different to other scholarships available in Wales and I am very much looking forward to receiving a diverse set of entries which reflect the personalities and talents of our prospective students."
