Welsh medium education at Wrexham Glyndŵr University

Wrexham Glyndŵr University is dedicated to expanding its education provision through the medium of Welsh. The university is proud of its Welsh roots and recognises the importance of reflecting the language and culture of north east Wales.

It welcomed the Welsh Government’s emphasis on the Welsh language and is working hard to realise the vision presented in the university’s Welsh Language Scheme.

Under the conditions of the Welsh Language Scheme, the university offers all of its administrative services bilingually. Upon registration, students are asked in which language they would like to receive correspondence from the university.

The university is also keen to expand the provision of courses that are offered through the medium of Welsh.

Students on every course are entitled to present work as part of an assessment through the medium of Welsh and to sit examinations in Welsh. Students must inform the university beforehand if they wish to present assessments through the medium of Welsh.
