University of Wales Trinity Saint David Group

The UWTSD Group is a confederation of several institutions including the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, as well as Coleg Sir Gâr and Coleg Ceredigion as constituent colleges. 

As part of a dual sector group structure comprising further education colleges and the university. The UWTSD Group has over 25,000 learners across 17 campuses in rural and city locations. The Group offers a continuum from FE to HE for the benefit of learners, employers and communities.

With a commitment to the well-being and heritage of the nation at the heart of all its activities, central to the University’s vision is the promotion and embedding of a dual-sector educational system which educates learners of all ages and backgrounds, and stimulates economic development in the region, across Wales and beyond.

University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Founded in 1822, the University of Wales Trinity Saint David will celebrate its bicentenary in 2022. Its 1828 Royal Charter is the oldest of any university in Wales and the third oldest in England and Wales after Oxford and Cambridge. The University’s campuses are located in Swansea, Carmarthen, Lampeter, Cardiff and London and it has a Learning Centre in Birmingham.

The University is committed to placing students at the centre of its mission by providing a relevant and inspiring bilingual curriculum, providing a supportive learning environment, investing in its campuses and facilities and ensuring that students, from all backgrounds, are given the opportunity to achieve their potential.

The strategic partnership between UWTSD and the NHS Wales Information Service (NWIS) commenced when NWIS relocated its South West Wales base, with 120 staff to the University’s Technium 2 building in Swansea.

The move signalled a new working relationship between both organisations which has already led to the development of a number of initiatives linked to health data management and will further facilitate NWIS’s work in delivering the national information and technology needed for modern patient care and over seventy digital services to users across NHS Wales and to other parts of the United Kingdom.
