Gaelic Language Plan

Gaelic Language Plan

Interested in learning Gaelic, or just learning more about it? Here are some opportunities from the University.

University Plan

In April 2011, Bòrd na Gàidhlig, the public body established to promote Gaelic and improve the status of the language in Scotland, asked us to produce a Gaelic Language Plan.

Working Group

In August 2011, the University set up a Gaelic Language Plan Working Group chaired by Frank Gribben, College Registrar in Humanities and Social Science. The Working Group is responsible to the Central Management Group for the development and implementation of the University of Edinburgh’s Gaelic Language Plan.


The University was successful in receiving part-funding from Bòrd na Gàidhlig to run an all-staff and all-student questionnaire.

Public consultation

The University undertook a 6-week public consultation on its Gaelic Language Plan throughout June and July 2012.

G Mòr

G Mòr is an independent, informal national group of Gaelic language plan practitioners.
