Welcome to Academi Hywel Teifi
Academi Hywel Teifi is a very special institution established by Swansea University in 2010 in memory of the University's former Welsh Professor and one of the nation's greats, Professor Hywel Teifi Edwards. The Academy is a unique organisation and the body that is greater than the sum of its parts which are three specific units:
- Academic and Creative Provision Unit
- Learn Welsh - Swansea Bay Area
- Translation and Language Compliance Unit
As well as empowering the status and use of the Welsh language, Academi Hywel Teifi's vision is to support students of all ages and educational, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds to learn Welsh or develop their skills in the language. It also works to promote the opportunities and benefits of studying through the medium of Welsh, together with presenting and celebrating its culture. Providing education in the Welsh language is at the core of Swansea University's work and strategy because of the institution's leading role in contemporary Wales, its regional and national responsibility, and its statutory responsibility.
