Overview

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is based in Swansea, Wales, and was formed in 2010, making it one of the youngest universities in the UK. The main campuses are based in and around Swansea’s centre as well as the towns of Lampeter and Carmarthen in South West Wales. A fourth campus is also located in London for international students studying business, management and IT degrees.

In total the University of Wales Trinity Saint David has over 25,000 students spread across its main campus and partner institutions. The Carmarthen Campus began life as a teacher training college, and has a reputation for education courses such as early childhood development, social inclusion and youth and community work. Lampeter has historically been the strongest Welsh university for research, particularly in areas of religion and the humanities, while Swansea is best known for automobile engineering courses.

Services for International Students

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David provides international orientation to new students as well as a cultural programme that consists of weekend trips to various locations in England and Wales. English language support, in areas such as academic writing, note taking and critical analysis, is available on all three main campuses.

Location

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is based across three main campuses in South West Wales: the Carmarthen campus, the Lampeter campus and the Swansea campus.  

South West Wales is a beautiful area in which to live and work with market towns surrounded by a mixture of hills and rolling countryside, providing a stimulating environment and many opportunities for outdoor recreation. The sea is never far away offering both sandy and rocky beaches, coastal inlets, and excellent walking. Also within easy reach of the University are Wales’ three National Parks: the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia, and the Pembrokeshire Coast. Local tourist attractions include the National Botanic Garden of Wales, Aberglasney Gardens, the Dolaucothi Roman Gold Mines and a National Wetlands Centre. The area is also full of archaeological and historical sites such as the Cistercian abbey at Strata Florida and the nearby Teifi Pools.
