University of Wales: Bangor

Introduction
The Department of Modern Languages (DML) is a small department with nine full-time staff delivering an array of degree programmes across four languages, namely French, German, Spanish and Italian.

Hmmm... Welsh obviously isn't a modern langauge.

Which Cornish University would benefit from a million quid to teach Cornish language courses?

There arn't any Cornish universities per say but there is the CUC - Combined Universities of Cornwall which is all of the colleges who provide Higher Education courses. I'm sure any funding would be welcome.

I think you'll find that's "Universities in Cornwall" not "Universities of Cornwall", we obviously can't be trusted with our own Uni, we have to have one run by outsiders. :-(

There lies your problem. You'll never get anywhere trying to promote a Cornish revival with other people's money. You need to generate the money from inside Cornwall to give your cause some weight.

Catch-22. How can we generate this money from tourism? Mrs Penwarden's B&B for Retired Gentlefolk isn't going to sponsor a final-year engineering project.

So where is all the money that tourism generates going?

You tell us. Supermarkets and petrol stations? A handful of hotel owners and caravan site owners? Tim Smit and Rick Stein's pockets? Tourism isn't an industry that would plough money into a University.

Seems like Cornwall is going the same way as North Wales is now in 20 years. Barren and bleak.
