Swansea University's commitment to the Welsh language

Swansea University is proud to be a bilingual university. This means that you're welcome to use your Welsh whichever way you come in to contact with the University.

We are committed to the Welsh Language Standards which came into operation on 1 April 2018, and replaced our previous Welsh Language Scheme as the document which outlines which services the University will provide through the medium of Welsh and how the University will ensure that full consideration is given to Welsh language matters in any policy or strategy decisions.

Academi Hywel Teifi is the Welsh-language powerhouse of the University, and is responsible for developing opportunities for students to study elements of their course through the medium of Welsh. They are also home to the Learn Welsh Swansea Bay centre, and the Welsh department itself.

The University's Welsh Language Policy Office is responsible for ensuring that the University complies with the Welsh Language Standards and also for creating and promoting opportunities for students, members of the public, and staff, to learn Welsh and to use their Welsh.
