The University of Wales Trinity Saint David (Welsh: Prifysgol Cymru Y Drindod Dewi Sant) is a multi-campus university with three main campuses in South West Wales, in Carmarthen, Lampeter and Swansea, a fourth campus in London, England, and learning centres in Cardiff, Wales, and Birmingham, England. The university came into existence through the merger of the two oldest higher education institutions in Wales, the University of Wales, Lampeter (UWL) and Trinity University College (TUC) in 2010, under Lampeter's royal charter of 1828. In 2011, it was announced that the University of Wales would also be merged into Trinity Saint David. On 1 August 2013 the university merged with Swansea Metropolitan University. The Patron of the university is the Prince of Wales, the President of Trinity Saint David is R. Brinley Jones and the Vice-Chancellor is Medwin Hughes. Students are taught by a team of experienced staff within a professional environment. Our aim is to enable our students to achieve their career aspirations and personal goals within a vibrant international community. The welcoming and supportive environment created within the campus ensures that, whatever their background, students are engaged and feel connected.
