The University of Wales Trinity Saint David offers modern and exciting programmes in a location that is second to none. Located by the sea, Swansea is Wales’ premier waterfront city and with the Gower Peninsula and the Brecon Beacons on our doorstep, what better place to work outdoors.

  • Waste and Travel Projects for the City and County of Swansea, Wales.
  • Invasive species mapping and monitoring
  • Tree planting and soil testing as part of a land reclamation project at the World Heritage Site, Blaenavon.
  • Mammal tracking – such as the Pine Marten recovery project (species reintroduction)
  • Porpoise spotting and data collection projects
  • Dune management and scenic assessment
  • Environment Week and Student Environment Society – volunteering opportunities.
  • Coastal and rocky shore surveys investigating the impacts of climate change.
  • Woodland / bioblitz surveys (Learning how to identify species in the field)
  • Creation of sustainability plans for the city
  • Outside work experience is positively encouraged and supported. There is an optional ‘Year-in Industry’.
