Collaborative Partnerships

The University offers programmes of study delivered through collaborative partnerships with other institutions in the UK and overseas.

Collaborative provision is important to the University as it enables its programmes to be made available to students from a wide range of geographical areas and offers them a truly global education experience. It is also beneficial to the University’s partner institutions, and students studying there, in offering valuable links to higher education in the UK, research and staff development opportunities, opportunities for student progression and the benefits available to all University of Wales Trinity Saint David alumni.
