Courses for studying in Welsh

We have up to 100 degree courses in various subject areas which you can study partly or wholly in Welsh.

I would recommend that any Welsh-speaker applying to study Medicine in Cardiff accept the offer of studying part of the course through the medium of Welsh. You will not miss out on any opportunities on the course - if anything, there are more opportunities when studying in Welsh. The Welsh lecturers and tutors are all lovely and extremely supportive.
