University course?

Agriculture with Animal Sciences

Why did you choose to study the degree subject?

I love the outdoors and I'm passionate about seeing an improvement in the agricultural industry.

Why did you choose to study through the medium of Welsh?

I find it easy to learn in my first language and familiarise myself with terms that I hope to use in a job in the future.

What is the best thing about studying a course partly through the medium of Welsh?

The size of the class. There are fewer students in the lectures which makes it easier to ask questions.

Any advice for prospective students who are worried about studying in Welsh?

Don't worry, as there is plenty of help available within the University, e.g. bilingual Power Point presentations.

Would you encourage others to apply for a Coleg Cymraeg scholarship and why?

Of course! The scholarship can help you financially and enable you to pay for study resources such as books or living costs.

Why did you apply to be an ambassador and what are you most looking forward to?

I would be lost if I wasn't studying through the medium of Welsh and I really appreciate the scholarship. I feel that it is important to encourage people to study through the medium of Welsh and to join the Coleg Cymraeg.

What do you enjoy most about being at university?

Being able to use the Welsh language from day to day and that everyone knows each other.
