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 2011/12 the proportion of all students receiving some teaching through the medium of Welsh was 3.6 per cent, a small decrease since 2010/11 (3.8 per cent).
- Excluding Welsh language and related subjects, the most popular subjects of study with some teaching through the medium of Welsh were education, creative arts and subjects allied to medicine.
- The proportion of Welsh domiciled students at Welsh HEIs who received some teaching through the medium of Welsh fell by 0.4 percentage points compared to 2010/11 but was 0.1 percentage points higher than in 2008/09 and 2009/10.
- The vast majority of students with some teaching through Welsh were on undergraduates courses; with over half of these studying full-time.
- 210 students completed an Initial Teaching Training (ITT) course which qualified them to teach through the medium of Welsh. As in the previous two years this represented close to 13 per cent of the ITT completers.
- Both the number of academic staff recorded as being able to teach through the medium of Welsh and the number actually teaching through the medium of Welsh increased by 10 per cent compared with 2010/11.
