Incredible value for money!

Slower paced courses start at only £60 for the year (Welsh for the Family /£30 concession rate -see below for further details). This works out at £1 (50p concession) per hour not including course materials but it does include access to online resources (but remember when opting for the slower paved course it will take two years to complete the level) . The faster paced and Intensive Combi and Dwys courses are therefore even better value, only £100 for the entire course/year, (£55 concession rate - see below  for further details).

You can even do a taster course for as little as £20 (£10 concession rate).

Please see induvidual course tables for full details on all course fees.

There are a number of different means of payment, card, cheque payable to ‘Swansea University’ or cash. You can even spread the cost and make two payments at the start and mid-course.

The fee should not be a barrier to Learning Welsh

We have schemes to help people who wish to learn Welsh but have difficulties paying the fees, or need help to cover the cost of travel, childcare or course materials. Please contact the office for further details. 

The National Centre for Learning Welsh administer a Learning Fund to assist some learners from across Wales with particular costs that directly relate to their attending of Welsh classes. These costs can include:

  • learning resources;

  • support relating to a disability.
