Trinity becomes Trinity University College
First Minister Rhodri Morgan and Education Minister Jane Hutt have praised the work of staff and students at Trinity College Carmarthen following the grant of university college title to Trinity by the Privy Council. This means that Trinity will now be known as Trinity University College/ Coleg Prifysgol Y Drindod.
Trinity College was awarded taught degree awarding powers by the Privy Council in December 2008 which enables Trinity University College to award its own degrees as well as those of the University of Wales. The First Minister said: “I want to offer my warmest congratulations to everyone at Trinity University College. This is a great achievement for Trinity. It is a recognition of the progress the College has made and the maturing of the institution as a whole.”
