In 2014/15 there were 6,355 students at Welsh HEIs with some teaching through the medium of Welsh, a 21 per cent increase since 2013/14.
This sharp increase comes from the number of part time students with some teaching through the medium of Welsh doubling to 2,315 in 2014/15 from 1,155 in 2013/14. The driver of this increase was a rise in the number of part-time postgraduate students studying a master of Educational Practice students at Cardiff University.
Alongside this, the number of full-time students with some teaching through Welsh remained stable with 4,040 in 2014/15 compared with 4,100 in 2013/14.
