Last Friday, I met with Dr Medwin Hughes to discuss the exciting plans for a new University in Wales.
University of Wales Trinity St David will be established in September this year by bringing together the University of Wales, Lampeter and Trinity University College, Carmarthen.
Dr Medwin Hughes is the Vice–Chancellor designate of the new University.
We had a very constructive and informative meeting and we agreed that this combines the chance to offer exciting new opportunities whilst building on the sound foundations of the historic inheritance of the two oldest Universities in Wales.
I was also pleased to hear of collaboration plans with regional Further Education Colleges and Swansea Metropolitan University.
I wish Medwin and his team every success in the future.
