The ceremonies provide an opportunity to celebrate their success and commitment, and to enable the University community to acknowledge their students’ achievements.

UWTSD’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Medwin Hughes, DL said: “The Graduation ceremony marks the climax in the academic career of our students.  It is the result of hard work and commitment, but we should also remember the support given by family and friends.

“Students will graduate with the skills and attributes they require to make a difference in their chosen career. I trust, as they look back at their time as a student at the University, that they take with them the many friendships and happy memories of our time here, and that their experiences at UWTSD will serve them well throughout their lives.

“I wish them success for their future and remind them that, as alumni of this University, we will endeavour to support them and hope that they will continue to stay in touch with us.” 

Gwilym Dyfri Jones, Provost of the Carmarthen and Lampeter campuses said: “All of those graduating in these ceremonies have an enormous contribution to make to the future well-being of society. This is their moment to use their skills, knowledge, and passion to shape the post-Covid world.

“We live in a world starving for new leadership, new ideas, new ways of thinking. They have a huge opportunity to impact positively on the lives of individuals, families, and whole communities. And there is nothing more eternal, or more powerful, than the impact we have on others.”

There will be two days of ceremonies in Carmarthen this week (July 4 and 5.)

This year UWTSD is celebrating 200 years of higher education in Wales. The bicentenary commemorates the establishment of St David’s College, Lampeter on 12 August 1822 through the laying of the foundation stone which marks the beginning of higher education in Wales.

From the seeds sown in Lampeter over two centuries ago to the development of its campuses, UWTSD has grown into a multi-campus, dual-sector University providing vocationally relevant programmes in partnership with employers.
