Swansea University Postgraduate Prospectus 2023

Swansea University provides a number of opportunities for you to study though the medium of Welsh at postgraduate level. If you have been studying through the medium of Welsh at undergraduate level, continuing to study through the language at postgraduate level is a natural step and we actively encourage you to do so. Since 2011, there has been a 135% increase in the number of students studying at least 40 credits through the medium of Welsh at Swansea University and our TEF (Teaching Excellence Framework) data shows that Welsh-speaking students are high achievers with regards to employability. In line with the Welsh Language Standards, your academic work can be submitted and assessed through the medium of Welsh across all subject areas and you will receive support from a Welsh-speaking personal tutor. ACADEMI HYWEL TEIFI The University’s Academi Hywel Teifi is a centre of excellence for studying the Welsh language, its literature, and culture. It gives Welsh-speaking students, or those keen to learn the language, the opportunity to study courses through the medium of Welsh and significantly increase their graduate employment prospects in the process. For detailed information about the Welsh-medium provision on offer, please pick up a Welsh prospectus or visit our website: WELSH-MEDIUM
