How does the University comply with the Welsh Language Standards?

In line with the Welsh Language Standards, the University is expected to take certain steps to outline how it will promote the use of the Welsh language at the University and how it will comply with the Welsh Language Standards. This is done through internal monitoring procedures and by publishing:  

  • Welsh Language Standards Action Plan that outlines how the University promotes the Welsh language and monitors compliance
  • Annual reports to the Welsh Language Comissioner:
         WLC Compliance Report April-July 2018 
         WLC monitoring report 2016-17
         WLC monitoring report 2015-16
         WLC monitoring report 2014-15
