History

Founded by Royal Charter in 1893, the University of Wales has played a substantial role in the development of higher education in Wales and internationally.

In October of 2011, the Councils of the University of Wales, the then Swansea Metropolitan University (SMU) and the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UoWTSD) made a commitment to merge. The first phase of the merger was completed in October 2012, when UoWTSD merged with SMU. The remaining institutions will work together to create a unified institution under the 1828 Charter of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

The University of Wales will honour and fulfil its commitments to students registered to study for its awards, whilst continuing to be monitored by the relevant regulatory authorities in the UK.

In August 2013, the University of Wales announced the creation of Adduned Cymru – The Wales Pledge which will safeguard the University’s legacy and core values for the nation and future generations.
