UMCB – the Welsh Students’ Union
Hello and welcome to UMCB’s pages! UMCB represents the interests of every Bangor University student who speaks Welsh, is learning Welsh, or who has an interest in the Welsh language or culture. This includes supporting and representing Welsh students who are having problems with their course or any other aspect of University life which is to do with the language, encouraging non-Welsh speaking students to learn the language, helping non-Welsh speakers who want to learn the language, creating opportunities for Welsh speakers and learners to socialise and live through the medium of Welsh, promoting Welsh culture to the University’s students and staff and strengthening the status of the language within the Union, the University and the local community.
Only members of UMCB with a valid UMCB membership card can take part in all UMCB’s activities, and UMCB members pay less for the activities that are open to all (like Clwb Cymru). Any Bangor student who can speak or is learning Welsh, or who has an interest in the Welsh language and culture can join UMCB.
UMCB cards are available from Freshers’ Week onwards and the process of getting hold of one is very easy. Just visit the SU!
