University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Branch Officer: Bethan Wyn Davies

The Trinity Saint David branch of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol is located on the University campus in Carmarthen. The branch is very active, and the majority of the University’s Welsh-speaking staff and students are members. The branch office is located in a central and prominent spot on campus where students can call in for a chat and receive advice and information at any time.

The University has invested in new Welsh medium provision in recent years in areas such as Art and Design, Sport and Outdoor Education Studies, Business, Early Childhood, Youth and Community Work, Theology and Religious Studies, and the provision is expanding further.

A high percentage of the Welsh medium and bilingual courses at Trinity Saint David are part of the Coleg’s Scholarship Scheme, and the University also offers students the opportunity to apply for a scholarship of up to £600 a year for studying their degree through the medium of Welsh.

The University’s Welsh language society is co-ordinated by the students, who organise a variety of social events and activities, from international rugby trips to sports competitions, along with the Intercollegiate Eisteddfod.

The Trinity Saint David Choir has been hugely successful on eisteddfod stages over the years, and a number of concerts are held with plenty of opportunities to perform, travel and socialise. The branch’s students have also formed a student committee, who organise various activities.

Trinity Saint David has excellent facilities; much work has been done over the past year to build new buildings and to improve facilities for students.

Student Opinion

“I can’t imagine spending my three years of university life anywhere other than Trinity Saint David! Everything is available on campus, and as it’s a relatively small university, we all got to know each other very quickly! For me, receiving my education through the medium of Welsh is very important since I was brought up speaking Welsh and received my school education in Welsh. Studying here means I can continue with that. This year I’ve had the honour of being president of the Welsh society, which is a great opportunity to get all the Welsh-speaking students together to socialise."
