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 Bangor University in subjects such as Zoology, Psychology and Economics.
Dr Sara Wheeler from Wrexham, who has been appointed Social Policy Lecturer at Bangor University is eager to start teaching and researching:
‘’I’m determined to ensure that an equal opportunity exists between the Welsh and English medium provision. Resources will have to be created and translated and I would like to publish research articles through the medium of Welsh.’’
Marian Pye from Llangefni has been appointed to a Zoology lecturing post and she hopes to expand upon the strong provision that already exists within the department.
Awel Vaughan-Evans from Gellifor will teach Psychology, after completing her undergraduate and post graduate courses at the university.
Dr Edward Thomas Jones from Bodedern also studied for his degree at Bangor University and has been awarded a lectureship in Economics.
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.’’
