Study through the medium of Welsh
We have nearly 100 degree courses which offer some or all of their modules in Welsh. Living in a bilingual capital city means you’ll also have plenty of chances to experience a vibrant Welsh language culture, on campus and off.
Our facilities are located across four sites, and include a training village, sports fields, a fitness and conditioning centre, and a studio.
We're working on the necessary adaptations to our sport offering for this year, but we wanted to give you a flavour of what we have available. Please note that, in the current situation, certain activities may not be able to take place.
