Are you considering studying through the medium of Welsh?

The Academi Hywel Teifi Welsh-medium Scholarships and Bursaries scheme is a scheme that is funded annually by the Welsh Language Strategy Committee budget and is administered by the Academi. The scheme is open to students who have already chosen to come to Swansea University who are considering or studying through the medium of Welsh where there is an opportunity, rather than through English.
