Making an application 

Applications to our full-time undergraduate courses can be made through UCAS. However, you can also apply directly to University of Wales Trinity Saint David using our online application form and the university will process a UCAS application on your behalf.

Once you have decided that you would like to study on the Certificate of Higher Education: Skills for the Workplace or Certificate of Higher Education: Health and Social Care course, you will need to apply by submitting an application directly to the University. 

Applications can be made through our online application form, which you can access by clicking on the following links:

When attending for your entrance test, you will be required to bring along:

  • Your passport
  • If you do not hold a British Passport, your entry Visa and/or biometric card which verifies that you have time to remain in the UK for the duration of the course

If you have prior qualifications, you will be required to bring along certificates for these on the day as well.
