Student Life

The merged University of Wales Trinity Saint David has three main campuses in South West Wales – Carmarthen, Lampeter and Swansea - each offering a different kind of student experience, although each with the same small and friendly, community feel.

We also offer a postgraduate programme at our Wales International Academy of Voice (WIAV) in Cardiff and a range of business and management programmes at our campus in London for international students.

All three of our main campuses offer:

  • Stunning locations near some of the world’s most spectacular coastline and countryside.
  • Safe, friendly, communities of learning, where you’ll get to know people really quickly.
  • All the learning resources and student support services you’ll need to be successful on your course.
  • Local facilities and accommodation to enhance your student experience and help you feel at home.
  • A students’ union on campus to offer advice and representation, plus clubs, sports, societies and entertainment.

The University has a strong sense of community and personal and social considerations are given prominence alongside academic opportunities. There are plenty of opportunities to take part in activities outside lectures and to benefit from the many networks and partnership the University has developed in the UK, other parts of Europe and internationally.

The pastoral care of students is a high priority at the and there is a strong support team available to help with academic and personal concerns. The Student Services team provides a range of services from careers, counselling, and accommodation, to advice with obtaining financial help and the disabled students' allowance, as well as providing students and graduates with work experience and placements.

The Students' Union is an important part of life for many students outside their academic work. The entertainment provided is of good value and quality, and includes a mixture of live bands, comedians, entertainers and themed events. The SU is responsible for the University's Clubs and Societies as well as for fielding sports teams. The Union also provides a welfare service for students and is active in representing students' views within the University and externally.
