Cardiff Welcomes Coleg Cymraeg Posts and Provision

14 September 2015
Once again this year, the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol has funded more lecturers to teach in various fields at universities across Wales.

As a result, Welsh medium provision will be available at Cardiff University in subjects such as Pharmacy, Surveying, and Speech and Language Therapy.

Wyn Davies from Neath, who is also a leading member of Only Men Aloud, will be one of those teaching Pharmacy through the medium of Welsh at Cardiff University.

Wyn is looking forward to returning to the university where he himself studied, and where he hopes to guide and educate the pharmacists of the future.

‘‘Welsh medium provision and service within pharmacy has been close to my heart since I graduated. Returning to Cardiff University to lecture under the auspices of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol will provide me with an opportunity to ensure that Welsh medium provision is an integral part of the health system.’’

Laura Doyle and Elen Jones will also be responsible for expanding the brand new provision and for recruiting more students to study Pharmacy through the medium of Welsh at Cardiff University.

Dr Awen Iorwerth will be responsible for expanding and strengthening the provision which is already available within Medicine at Cardiff University and Anwen Davies will offer support to Healthcare Science students with their studies.

Dr Ioan Matthews, Chief Executive of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol said:

‘‘We were glad to be able to support these appointments and look forward to seeing more students studying subjects through Welsh as a result of the Coleg’s investment. I would like to wish them all well as they create resources and recruit perspective students over the years to come.’’
