Following the announcement that Cardiff Welsh Students' Union will be established in due course, the NUS Wales Welsh Language Campaign Committee has released this statement.
It is a privilege and a pleasure to be able to congratulate Cardiff University on their cross-campus decision to create Cardiff Welsh Students' Union (CWSU).
Following a motion to the university's student senate to establish CWSU, the proposal was passed by 87% of senators.
Cardiff will follow in the footsteps of Aberystwyth Welsh Students' Union and Bangor Welsh Students' Union in ensuring strong and stable representation for Welsh students in the university.
CWSU will work hard over the coming months under the leadership of the current Welsh Language Officer Osian Wyn Morgan, who is a member of the NUS Wales Welsh Language Campaign Committee, to ensure a fair and balance set-up that will represent all Welsh speakers, be they fluent or learners.
As NUS Wales Welsh Language Campaign Committee, we looking forward to working with CWSU as they create one central union that represents Welsh speakers in Wales' capital city, and we offer them our full support on this journey.
Congratulations, and we look forward to working with you during this new, golden period in the history of the representation of Welsh students at Cardiff University.
