Bangor University offers more courses through the medium of Welsh than anywhere else, and we have the highest number of students choosing to study academic subjects through the medium of Welsh.
Bangor University offers a full life through the medium of Welsh. Located in the Welsh heartland of Gwynedd, the Welsh language is an integral part of university life and is spoken throughout the city. And with so many Welsh speakers and learners choosing to study here, there is an incredible social vibrancy along with a host of Welsh language activities. The focal point for much of the Welsh language events and activities organised is UMCB, the Welsh language students' union.
Contributing to this vibrancy is the Welsh language halls of residence, Neuadd John Morris-Jones. JMJ offers a special opportunity for students to live in a wholly Welsh language environment.
The Bangor University branch of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol is located at Canolfan Bedwyr. It is centrally located and easily accessible – students are welcome to drop in for a chat or to ask staff about any aspect of studying through the medium of Welsh at Bangor. There are modern facilities such as the Coleg’s video-conferencing studio, developed specifically for teaching modules in collaboration with other universities. The branch also works closely with UMCB, to inform students of Coleg activities.
