Postgraduate Student Life
What is it like to be a postgraduate student?
Postgraduate students can gain experience from studying and socialising in Welsh, even if they are studying in another country. In this section, you can find out about the experiences of some postgraduate ambassadors. Some live and study in Wales, and some are studying beyond Wales!
At the beginning of every academic year, Coleg Cymraeg appoints Postgraduate Ambassadors for a period of 9 months.
How would the role of postgraduate ambassador help me? Well, it could be beneficial for your CV, it could give you an opportunity to be seen, and it could help your development as an academic. We want the cohort who become ambassadors to develop a Welsh-language ‘postgraduate community’ (with the support of CCC).
We won’t be telling the ambassadors what to do. This is an opportunity for you to say what postgraduate students really want, and to share information about the type of support that is already available (e.g. Research Skills Programme etc).
Not studying in Wales? No problem! If you become a postgraduate ambassador, you will be given many opportunities to do things through the medium of Welsh which could help your research. Such as writing a Welsh article for Gwerddon Fach, working on our stall at Eisteddfodau or at events, and communicating through the medium of Welsh. All this and more... and you get paid!
