  • Period covered: 2014/15
An annual report showing information on students with some teaching through Welsh and academic staff who are able to teach through Welsh by institution, mode and level of study, gender and module subject.

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.
