Swansea University is proud to be a bilingual University. Welsh-language provision extends to a broad range of the University’s services and activities as well as its academic provision.

The Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011 established a legal framework to impose a duty on some organisations to comply with standards of conduct in respect of the Welsh language. This means that students and members of the public have rights to use the Welsh language when they come into contact with the University.

With effect from 1 April 2018, the Welsh Language Standards replace the University’s Welsh Language Scheme. The duties outlined within the Standards stipulate that organisations should not treat the Welsh language less favourably than the English language, and lay out requirements to promote and facilitate the use of the Welsh language (making it easier for people to use the language in their day-to-day-life).
