Gallwch fynychu hyd at naw weminar dwyieithog gyda chyfle i holi cwestiynau byw ar bynciau hanfodol megis dewis cwrs, datganiadau personol, cyllid myfyrwyr a manteision astudio trwy gyfrwng y Gymraeg.

Bydd y digwyddiad rhyngweithiol hwn yn rhoi cyfle i chi ymweld â stondinau a sgwrsio gyda chynrychiolwyr, gweld gwybodaeth a gwylio fideos, lawrlwytho prosbectysau a mynychu gweminarau byw mewn awditoriwm rhithiol.
