In Wales, being able to communicate in Welsh and English is a significant advantage for graduates looking for work. Over 582,000 people in Wales speak Welsh and research shows that employees with bilingual skills are more likely to earn a salary 8-10% higher than workers without bilingual skills. Having the ability to use Welsh in the workplace can give you an edge over your competitors.
These days it's possible to study all sorts of subjects through the medium of Welsh, from journalism to psychology, to law and the environment - the list is endless. It's possible to get funding if you are studying a course through the medium of Welsh. The Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol offer scholarships that can be worth up to £3000 for studying a course - or part of your course - in Welsh.
