Why did you choose to study the degree subject?

I am very interested in joining the Police and see this degree course as the best way to go about it.

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

Welsh is my first language so I find it easier to write in Welsh.

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

Only about 7 of us are studying through the medium of Welsh so we have more one-to-one time with our tutor.

Any advice for prospective students who are worried about studying through the medium of Welsh?

Nothing to worry about at all; many of my fellow students are jealous that they aren't able to study through the medium of Welsh!

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

Definitely. It's great that the provision is there to be able to study modules in Welsh, and it's a huge bonus that there's a scholarship available to do so!!

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

I'm looking forward to being a face and voice of the Coleg Cymraeg and encouraging prospective students to join the Coleg Cymraeg.

Being close to school friends and family
