Taith is an international learning exchange programme established to create life-changing opportunities for people in Wales to learn, study and volunteer all over the world.

Taith is committed to reaching individuals and organisations who may face additional barriers to international learning exchange opportunities.

Taith promotes collaborations between Welsh and international organisations that enable two-way learning exchanges. Hosting people in Wales is a fundamental principle of the programme with funding available to welcome learners, volunteers and staff from partner organisations around the world to Wales.
Taith mobilities and projects seek to inspire learners and raise aspirations. Educators and staff projects should create immediate and lasting benefits for generations of learners. Taith creates opportunities to broaden horizons, experience new ways of life, and bring back lessons to share with people at home.
Taith has allocated over £10m to Universities Wales to deliver the third phase of Global Wales (the Global Wales III project), which will run until 2026. The Global Wales Partnership provides a strategic, collaborative approach to international Further and Higher Education in Wales. The aims of the Global Wales III project include building international partnerships and increasing student numbers from four priority markets: Europe, India, North America and Vietnam.
