Studying through the medium of Welsh
As a department we maintain extensive provision through the medium of Welsh in all the courses we offer.
Students can choose to study elements of each module in the first year through the medium of Welsh.
It is also possible to study elements of over half of your modules through the medium of Welsh in the second year and up to a half of your modules in your final year. In addition, many of the individual projects we offer at Masters level are available entirely through the medium of Welsh.
Why study Mathematics through the medium of Welsh?
There are a number of reasons to study Mathematics through the medium of Welsh at university level, including:
- Transition from school: Many students come to university having studied A level Maths entirely through the medium of Welsh. The opportunity to study through the medium of Welsh at university facilitates the leap between your school and university studies.
- New opportunities: Some students choose to study Maths through the medium of Welsh for the first time with us. The bilingual nature of our provision allows those students to develop greater confidence in the subject and language. This is reinforced by the opportunity to be part of the vibrant Welsh community here in the department and university.
- Employability skills: Students who study a proportion of their modules through the medium of Welsh develop an ability to handle the subject in both languages. Therefore, in addition to developing mathematical skills, you will naturally develop transliteration skills that will be of benefit in the world of work.
- Financial Support: Our Welsh-medium provision is supported by the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol and many of our degrees are eligible for College Incentive Scholarships. In addition, some of our combined degrees also qualify for the College's main scholarship. Aberystwyth University also offers scholarships to the value of up to £400 a year for following part or all of your course through the medium of Welsh.
