Double celebration for Lampeter graduate


UWTSD’s Rory Butcher is one of the first graduates of BA Conflict and War, which has enabled him to study abroad and take an active role in a number of societies. And he has been awarded a First Class Honours degree too!

Rory said: “For the past three years I have been working on my BA in Conflict and War at Lampeter. I chose the campus because, at the time, I was quite a timid guy - and Lampeter seemed the sort of friendly place where I would fit in. Thankfully the place has more than done its job in helping me become a better person. I've loved learning from the lecturers here (especially Lester), and who'd have guessed that living in a quiet Welsh village would be just what 18 year old me needed to come out of my shell?”

He added: “I am now confident (some would say too much!) in my opinions and beliefs, and am looking forward to a career in academia. More specifically I am planning to teach at a college in Canada once I have finished my PhD - something I wouldn't have dreamed of without my study abroad semester courtesy of UWTSD. What I have learnt about both my discipline and myself during my time in Lampeter is an experience I will never forget, and has very much helped shape who I am and what I want to do with my life.”
