"Due to the positive experience of studying though the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and their accommodating and flexible approach to academic studies, I decided to further my personal academic development with the university by undertaking a PhD research degree."

"I have done lots of challenges in my time, but this one (MA Outdoor Education) has tested me to the point of tears… I have learnt an awful lot, going through this process, and it has certainly challenged my way of thinking, however most importantly it has led me to the area which most interests me and what I want to explore more... just this week I had the confidence to go to the inaugural sports coaching Applied Coaching Research conference... I would never have trodden this path if I hadn’t attended Trinity Saint David."
Graham French (2012-16 and PhD MA Outdoor Education
"When I started the MA Outdoor education course, my aim was very much to become a better practitioner. The course delivered on that aim, but not in the way I had expected, as I learned to be far more reflective than I had been, and gained a deeper understanding of the pedagogy and practice of outdoor education. Thus, I have definitely become a better practitioner, not through simply learning about practice, but by gaining a critical understanding of both the discipline and my own approaches to delivery. I have been able to apply this critical understanding to enhance my own practice and knowledge further, and the course allowed me to take the next step in my career, moving to a role where I have opportunities to impact the sector as a whole."
Jason Wragg MA Outdoor Education 2014-16
"Undertaking the MA Outdoor Education at UWTSD has truly been an experience that has developed me and my career prospects. Initially I found undertaking my new studies a challenge, having been away from education for a long period of time. However the format of learning, a mixture of online learning and weekend sessions provides a great learning environment that supports everyone on the course."
