Collaborative Partnerships Office

The Collaborative Partnerships Office supports partnership delivery of UWTSD programmes, and University of Wales programmes (until completion), overseeing approval and monitoring processes and offering advice to staff at the collaborative partner institutions and the University in matters relating to collaborative provision.

The office is based in Cardiff at the University of Wales Registry Building, King Edward VII Avenue, Cardiff, CF10 3NS.

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.
