The Cardiff Met Branch is a society of students and staff who are keen to promote Welsh medium education and opportunities for students and staff and it works closely with the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol to ensure this.
The Coleg Cymraeg is leading the development of Welsh-medium and bilingual education and training in the post-compulsory sector in Wales. The Coleg achieves this by working effectively in partnership with universities, further education institutions and apprenticeship providers to build a world-class, inclusive Welsh-medium education and training system.
Hundreds of students and a significant number of staff across the University are members of the Branch and there is also the opportunity for any student to become a member. For more information about the College or to become a member follow the link below:

To receive the Scholarship you must study at least 1/3 of the course through the medium of Welsh. If you are on one of these courses and would like to receive the £1500 (even if you haven't choose to study in Welsh again), then contact Daniel Tiplady (Branch Officer of the Coleg Cymraeg) firstname.lastname@example.org
Certificate in Language Skills
The Certificate has been developed to enable students studying in Wales to gain a certificate that demonstrates their language skills, and their ability to work through the medium of Welsh. Many employers have expressed their support for the Certificate, including ITV Wales and the Welsh Government.
The university offers free sessions to students to prepare them for the Certificate and to improve their Welsh-medium skills.
