Students and the Welsh language

We are committed to delivering a bilingual student experience and we strive to fulfil our duties under The Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011 and the Welsh Language Standards. As a student, you have rights as part of these standards to have the following:

  • Letters in Welsh
  • Student Handbook in Welsh
  • Prospectus in Welsh
  • Welsh-speaking Personal Tutor
  • Counselling service in Welsh
  • Meetings in Welsh
  • Certificates in Welsh
  • Forms in Welsh

Plus you can submit written work in Welsh (this will depend on the examining body) and apply for financial support in Welsh.

We have a range of Welsh activities running throughout the year, so keep an eye out on our student portal, Student Experience site and the digital screens around our campuses for details.

Whether you’re a fluent Welsh speaker or a learner, we would like to encourage you to use as much Welsh as possible in college. To help you find other Welsh speaking students and staff, we use the Cymraeg Gwaith (Work Welsh) orange symbol on our lanyards, as shown opposite. If you attended a Welsh-medium school or if you feel happy to communicate in Welsh, you’ll be offered one of these lanyards when you enrol. We use similar lanyards for staff, so when you see the orange symbol, please feel free to speak to that person in Welsh.

We also have a Student Engagement Lead and a team of Welsh Ambassadors sponsored by the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, who are here to help and support you to continue using your Welsh whilst you are at college.
