The University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) was founded in 1822 – and its Royal Charter is the oldest in Wales and England after the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. 

From the historic campus in the rural town of Lampeter to the student community in Carmarthen, in West Wales, there’s something for everyone. With the university’s newest campus situated in the heart of Swansea’s city centre, as well as a learning centre in Cardiff, and with further campuses in Birmingham and London, UWTSD offers a truly global and tailored learning experience. 

UWTSD places its students at the heart of everything it does. Each campus provides a different and tailored student experience. Study with UWTSD and you will find a unique learning environment, a friendly community where students tell you how much they value being a name and not a number – and where lecturers nurture you through your studies, while you forge friendships for life.  

Start your journey towards your life ambitions in this exceptional and historic university, founded 200 years ago and yet recognized as one of the most dynamic and modern in Wales, building for the future and one step ahead in rapidly changing times. 

While UWTSD already has a world-renowned reputation as a centre for humanities, more recently, undergraduates studying for Theatre Design and Production have built props for The Brit Awards and a team of engineers helped develop a 3D-printed respiratory support system to help the NHS in the fight against COVID-19. 

From a postgraduate degree in one of UWTSD’s high ranking art and design courses, a new undergraduate degree in commercial dance to discovering a new and innovative approach to teacher education,  UWTSD has more than 300 courses to pick from. 

They’re award-winning, too. 

Courses such as art, classics and ancient history, design and crafts, education, engineering, fashion and textiles, film production and photography, forensic science and archaeology and music have all been voted best in Wales in this year’s Guardian League Table. 

With small class sizes, students from all over the world can learn in a pocket-size environment where their name is valued above all else. 

Will you be next to enrol? 

One student who jumped at the opportunity to study at UWTSD is 25-year-old Ivory, from Arizona, United States.
