“I enjoy studying part of my BA Business Management course through the medium of Welsh. The lecturers are experienced and enthusiastic, and I understand the modules better when they are taught in Welsh. I also work part-time for John Lewis, so combining theoretical study with experience of real business is invaluable.”
