Required by the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) to support the Welsh Language Board in monitoring the number of Welsh speakers continuing their education in Welsh and the potential demand for Welsh medium education.
Although the requirement for the data has been stipulated by NAW, HEFCW may also use the data to inform policy development on Welsh medium higher education provision.
The level of Welsh speaker should be defined by the student and not the institution.
