What’s an Ambassador?  

They are students at some of our universities in Wales, and they help Coleg Cymraeg to speak to people about; studying in Welsh, the scholarships that are available, the Welsh Unions and events that could be of interest to you.

They are also given the opportunity to create blogs and work on our social media accounts. Every year, the ambassadors are offered the opportunity to work on our stall at Eisteddfodau, and to visit schools with a member of the Coleg Cymraeg marketing team to speak to pupils.
