German and Welsh (BA)

  • QR52

4 years (full-time) / n/a (part-time) / n/a (distance / e-Learning)

Within this degree scheme, students will have the opportunity to pair the popular European language of German with Welsh – a language experiencing a resurgence within Wales and beyond. By combining these two courses, students will not only gain valuable linguistic skills, but increase their employability both in Wales and Europe. The time spent on each subject is effectively halved, enabling students to develop their language skills in both subjects. In addition, students will spend their third year studying in Germany.

This course is only open to prospective students who have studied Welsh as a First Language to Advanced Level. The reason for this is that students who have studied Welsh as a second language must study 80 credits of Welsh during their first year. The exciting, intensive nature of the course, and the number of face to face contact hours means that the timetable does not therefore allow for some subjects to be studied with Welsh. If you do not have A level Welsh, and/or feel that you may be able to follow the First Language Welsh route, whatever your background or qualifications, don’t hesitate to contact

“Mae’r cwrs hwn yn agored i ddarpar fyfyrwyr sydd wedi astudio’r Gymraeg fel Iaith Gyntaf hyd at Safon Uwch. Mae hyn oherwydd bod myfyrwyr sydd wedi astudio’r Gymraeg fel Ail Iaith yn astudio 80 credyd o Gymraeg yn ystod eu blwyddyn gyntaf gyda ni. Mae natur ddwys, gyffrous y cwrs hwn, a nifer uchel yr oriau cyswllt wyneb-yn-wyneb, yn golygu nad yw’r amserlen yn caniatáu I rai pynciau gael eu hastudio ar y cyd â’r Gymraeg. Os nad oes gennych lefel A yn y Gymraeg, a/neu rydych yn teimlo y gallech ddilyn Llwybr Iaith Gyntaf, peidiwch ag oedi rhag cysylltu â”
