Who we are

We’re the Students’ Union for all students at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, no matter where or how they study. As an independent student-led charity, we work with the university to make sure students are being heard. We will speak up for students, stand up for their rights, and empower them to make the most of their time at university.

Our students are diverse in interests and needs and are spread across a wide geographical area. Our ongoing challenge is to reflect and represent that diversity, and to build a series of connected student communities under a shared collective approach that remains reflective of individual campus identities and history.

We are an organisation with ambition and we are keen to develop our approach and services to meet the demands of the students of today. We have the appetite for change and want to broaden the positive impact of our projects and services on our students, our University and our local communities.

The Students’ Union has been recognised recently for the quality of its academic representation work and delivers an Annual Quality Report to the University which has been well received and has generated meaningful change.

We already run an impressive range of student-led activities and have some incredibly passionate and highly skilled student volunteers. Our ambition is to recruit, train and inspire even more of our students so that all of our students to leave the University proud of having been a member of our Students’ Union with an understanding of the impact that we’ve had on their lives and the skills and experience to excel in whatever they choose to do.
