Information

About University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Address and Location

Trinity St. David students may be based on one of two campuses in Carmarthen or Lampeter, South-West Wales. Both locations are close to the countryside and extremely cost-effective to live in. The university has also recently founded a third campus in South London, an extension of its successful business school.
 

Background and History

Although the University of Trinity St. David was only established in 2010, the roots of the institution stretch back to the early nineteenth century and the founding of Lampeter college. Some years later an adjoining campus was created in Camarthen, a merger with Swansea Metropolitan University and the University of Wales followed in 2011.

Location and Accessibility

Carmarthen

By Road: Motorists should head along the M4, exiting at Junction 49 and following the A48 until the university is signposted.

By Rail: Regular services run to Camarthen station from the rest of the UK. The university is a short walk from the station.

Lampeter

By Road: Motorists should head along the M4, exiting at Junction 49 and following the A48 until signs for Lampeter and the A485 appear.

By Rail: Camarthen station is closest to the Lampeter campus; students will need to catch a bus to the site.

London

By Road: Navigating the capital's roads can be tricky and parking tight. Leave the M25 at Junction 8, and follow the A23 into the centre of the city.

By Rail: Oval is the closest Tube station to the campus, which is situated inside Kennington Park.

Accessibility: Building regulations have restricted the provision of disabled facilities in the university's older buildings. St. David's modern facilities have been designed with disabled users in mind, however. University staff are very willing to make necessary timetable adjustments and provide support to those who require it.

What's on Offer

BA, BSc, FdSc, Cert HE, MA, MBA, MSc, PG Cert, Postgraduate Diploma, Mth, MPhil, PhD

Entry Requirements

Entry standards vary between subjects and campuses, with most requiring more than 200 UCAS points for consideration. Specific course information can be found on the university website.

Accommodation at University of Wales Trinity Saint David

University Accommodation

Accommodation at the Carmarthen campus is spread across several halls, all featuring free wi-fi, study spaces and shared bathroom facilities. Similar facilities can be found in the Lampeter residences. Students at the new London school are expected to source their own accommodation.

Private Accommodation

A majority of Lampeter and Carmarthen students opt to move into private accommodation for their second and third years of study. Both towns are cheap to rent in compared to other parts of the UK. Students at the London campus are provided with guidance when sourcing their own accommodation.

Courses & Fees

Academic Strengths and Research Profile

Facilities at University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Academic Facilities

Students at the Lampeter and Carmarthen campuses have access to a wide range of subject-specific texts in the university's on-site libraries. Since 2011, significant investment has been made to provide both campuses with state-of-the-art computers and printing equipment. Lecture halls and classrooms are of a good standard at all sites.

Other on-site Amenities

Both campuses provide university-run cafes and academic bookshops, while sporting students can take advantage of on-site fitness suites. The university Students' Union runs a wide selection of student societies and interest clubs.

Medical and Social Care

Lampeter students have access to an on-campus medical centre, while those in Camarthen and London are asked to register with local surgeries.

 

What's on in the Area

Camarthen and Lampeter are relatively small towns, meaning student entertainment can feel limited. That said, Camarthen offers excellent shopping and cinema facilities. St. David students in London benefit from all of the excitement of the capital - Greenwich is within cycling distance and Soho and Covent Garden only a Tube ride away.

 

Moving On

The university provides a dedicated careers service, offering students advice and support when searching for work experience and postgraduate employment.

Did you know?

Famous Lampeter and Carmarthen alumni include the rugby player Dewi Bebb, music journalist Pete Paphides and writer Juliette Foster.The university's Lampeter campus is recognised as having the oldest rugby team in Wales, while the amphitheatre at Carmarthen is the most westerly structure of its kind in the Roman world.

Is the Trinity St David right for you?

Students looking to study educational and vocational courses are well-provided for at Trinity St. David. The university is supportive and of a manageable size but this can have its disadvantages: applicants shouldn't expect a large, diverse student body of the kind found at the Universities of Manchester, Leeds and elsewhere in the country.
