The University of Wales Trinity Saint David
The University is the newest in Wales, yet its roots stretch back to the creation of the founding institutions in 1822 and 1848. The creation of a new university is an exciting challenge: it is an opportunity to build upon existing excellence to create a sustainable future.
The new university has already secured a multimillion pound government investment and this will be reinvested to provide an environment befitting twenty-first century learning, teaching, research and scholarship.
The University offers expertise, resources and services to help employers and their employees to improve their business practices.
The range of services includes providing higher level skills training and continuing professional development either at the University or in the workplace to consultancy services and enabling businesses to access a network of expertise and knowledge through a range of funded initiatives.
The University prioritises the development of the knowledge economy and all academic staff are encouraged to contribute to the economic vitality and regeneration of the region through the dissemination of research, scholarship and best professional practice.
The University is developing a reputation for working collaboratively with business, industry, government and other partners to deliver innovative solutions to address identified problems. Researchers are encouraged to demonstrate the benefits of their work to the economy, society, public policy, culture and quality of life in order to ensure that the research makes a valuable contribution to the wider world and for our society as a whole.
The research of many members of staff was recognised as world leading within the most recent national assessment of research quality, the Research Assessment Exercise 2008.
