Creating a new university in Wales
The University of Wales Trinity Saint David will be created by the University of Wales Lampeter and Trinity University College, and already the development has secured a £14.3 million government funding package via the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW).
Secretary of State Peter Hain said:
“The proposed University of Wales Trinity St David, bringing together two of Wales’ oldest institutions, will strengthen Higher Education provision in West Wales. It will provide a dynamic environment in which students can thrive. The University’s vision is pioneering – and will see the institution continuing to attract students from across Wales, the UK and the rest of the World. I would like to wish the University all the best for the future, as they play a key role in ensuring that Wales’ higher education system meets the needs of the 21st century.”
