University’s Welsh-language ambitions shared at Eisteddfod AmGen 2021

Cardiff University

Cardiff University’s vision of a positive and inclusive Welsh-language culture for its staff and students will provide the backdrop for its contribution to Eisteddfod AmGen 2021.

Academi Gymraeg Prifysgol Caerdydd, a new institute, which connects those involved with the Welsh language – whether students, staff or external stakeholders – will be established as part of Cardiff University’s activity during Wales’ national festival.

It will be a key driver in achieving and implementing the ambitions of the University’s Welsh-language strategy, Yr Alwad/Embrace It, which builds on existing initiatives, networks and activities, drawing them together into a clear and defined cultural and community agenda.

The strategy sets out ambitions to increase the number of students on its Welsh-medium and bilingual programmes, expand and enhance Welsh-medium teaching, develop a Cynnig Caerdydd for prospective students and a Campws Cymraeg for those already studying and working at the University.

A public-facing Welsh-language research community is also planned to help shape policy and research agendas within Wales and beyond.

Professor Damian Walford Davies, Cardiff University’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor with responsibility for the Welsh language, said:
