University of Wales Trinity Saint David was founded in 1822 and will celebrate its bicentenary in 2022. Its 1828 Royal Charter is the oldest of any university in Wales. UWTSD has campuses in Swansea, Carmarthen, Lampeter, Cardiff and London and it also has a Learning Centre in Birmingham. The UWTSD Group includes the University of Wales, as well as Coleg Sir Gâr and Coleg Ceredigion as constituent colleges.
UWTSD’s vision is to be a University with a commitment to the well-being and heritage of the nation at the heart of all its activities. Central to the vision is the promotion and embedding of a dual-sector educational system which educates learners of all ages and backgrounds, and stimulates economic development in the region, across Wales and beyond.
UWTSD places emphasis upon applied learning, strong academic disciplines and a clear commitment to innovation, enterprise, creative entrepreneurship and knowledge transfer. Such provision is embedded into UWTSD’s Swansea College of Art, where the traditional study of art and design meets contemporary, cutting-edge and industry-led innovation.
The University has a strong sense of place and has developed our campuses as impact hubs linking to national and regional priorities and ensuring that we respond to the economic and social needs of our communities.
