Read University of Wales (Trinity Saint David) Reviews
UWTSD (Lampeter) is in dire straits. Now, my teaching was great and I really value what they showed me in life. Sadly the faculty is dreadful, complaints were not heard, the buildings are falling apart, the "club" on campus is a joke. Due to it's small size the place is a rumour mill. It's so bad that people leave and have even committed suicide due to rumours spread (mainly by people holding some type of strange grudge). Honestly, go if you didn't like school and didn't have many friends at home. If you did however have a life before choosing rural Wales be warned, the nerds have grouped there and will gun for anybody with an once of confidence.
If you want value for money, and to feel that you are valued as a student, then avoid this university. Severe cost-cutting and penny-pinching means that facilities for students are rather poor. Accommodation is tiny and poorly maintained, SU facilities are dire, and library and IT facilities are poorly equipped.
UWTSD gave me both work experience from two placements, one in the UK for a Software Company and one in the USA for a 14 month Management Internship; alongside getting a degree. You can't ask for more than that.
I spent some of my happiest years studying English at UWTSD Lampeter. The stunning Old Building brings a touch of Oxbridge to the beautiful Welsh countryside. The size of the Uni means you get to know all the lecturers really well and you make friendships for life. UWTSD Lampeter taught me how to think independently and enabled me to succeed in a way I don't think would have been possible in a large impersonal university. I will always be grateful for the experience.
I really enjoyed my time as a student at UWTSD Swansea. As a student for a second time I think I was able to appreciate even more the effort that goes in to support students from all walks of life. My course had great tutors who were easy to approach inside and outside of lectures and the small class size meant that we got a lot of individual support. There were also great links with industry that was great for helping us gain 'real world' experiences.
