The University of Wales: Trinity Saint David was formed on 18 November 2010 and holds the distinction of being one of the UK’s newest as well as its oldest universities. It was created from the merger of Trinity University College and University of Wales Lampeter.
The latter was awarded a charter in 1828, which was extended for the creation of the new university, meaning that Trinity Saint David holds the oldest royal charter in England and Wales after the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. In 2011 HRH the Prince of Wales became its Royal Patron.
In October 2012, Swansea Metropolitan became an integral part of the Trinity Saint David group although it will retain its own brand identify for the purposes of recruiting students to the city.
As part of a Dual Sector University structure the University has worked alongside its FE Partners and a further development in this relationship sees both Coleg Sir Gâr and Coleg Ceredigion undertaking due diligence to merge into UWTSD by the end of the academic year. In the future the University of Wales will also merge into UWTSD.
