The Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies is a dedicated research institute of the University of Wales, located alongside the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth.
We carry out collaborative research projects into the language, literature and history of Wales and the other Celtic countries. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework confirmed our status as an international centre of excellence in Celtic Studies, rating 65% of our work as ‘world-leading’ or 'internationally excellent' (4/3*).
