Oldest Royal Charter in Wales | A History of UWTSD
Steeped in history, the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) was formed on 18 November 2010 which brought together Trinity University College Carmarthen and University of Wales Lampeter, under Lampeter's Royal Charter of 1828.
The University's Royal Charter is the oldest in Wales and England after the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. In 2011, HRH the Prince of Wales became the University's Royal Patron. The University continues to grow with Swansea Metropolitan University which became part of UWTSD in August 2013 as well as Coleg Sir Gâr and Coleg Ceredigion in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
