Careers with Welsh
The further your child continues with his studies in Welsh the more useful it will be for a career. Fluent Welsh speakers are in high demand in careers such as:
- Media and performing
- Welsh Government
- Teaching – especially primary teaching
- Local Government
- Health and Social Services
- Public Relations
By studying Welsh to A Level students are usually able to “cross the bridge” and become fluent Welsh speakers. The Welsh second language A Level is a highly respected and accepted qualification by all UK universities, proving as it does that the student has learned a language to a very high level.
Welsh is available at universities in Wales as a degree subject, either single honours or as a joint degree with another subject. Students can also study other subjects or take particular modules through the medium of Welsh which will further develop their Welsh language skills.
