Arthurian Studies students from Bangor University , may engage in deep comparative study of Latin, Welsh, Irish, Breton and English/French texts, with the additional advantage of studying other linguistic traditions, if necessary in modern English translation. 

Our experts teach on such subjects as Welsh and ‘Celtic’ mythology, including its dissemination and reception in modern mystical traditions and wider thought. 

Applicants may also work with one of our creative writers to include creative writing in their portfolio of work.


Current and past research students have engaged in higher degrees, teaching, research and librarianship in higher education, publishing, and a range of related activities.
