This is a modular undergraduate honours degree programme offering 360 credits over three years. Students will take half of their credits in Education, and the other half in Welsh. All Welsh modules are taught in the medium of Welsh.
In year one, students will undertake six compulsory modules. In year two, students will take two compulsory modules (one in each academic subject) and select from optional modules totalling 40 credits per subject. In year three students will take two compulsory modules (one in each academic subject), and select four optional modules – two in Education and two in Welsh.
Students benefit from a varied and well supported programme of study including lectures, seminars, debates, collaborative group work, field visits to schools and other educational settings, translation lab classes, and online, digital learning. Independent study and self-directed learning is an integral component of each module.
Staff offer opportunities for one-to-one support on academic matters and students are assigned a personal tutor from each academic department to provide personal, academic, and professional support.
Assessment: Students will be assessed through a combination of unseen examinations and coursework, including: essays, presentations (poster and oral), written reports, reflective blogs, personalised learning records, portfolio work, research proposals, oral and language tests, and video blogs. Students are also required to complete an 8,000 word empirically based research dissertation in the final year. These multiple forms of assessment will be used to meet the diverse learning styles and previous educational experiences of students.
Please note that students choosing to study towards the Cambridge English Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) will also have to undertake an examination as part of the qualification.
