Good employment prospects on graduation
We take great pride in our efforts to ensure that our graduates are in employment at the end of their courses. 90% of Trinity Saint David graduates are in employment or further study within 6 months of graduating according to HESA’s Destination of Leavers in Higher Education 2011.
The University also provides many opportunities for students to take part in activities that will broaden their experiences and skills. Some are provided as part of the courses; others are in addition. They all, however, enable students to develop employability skills and become familiar with workplace practices. More...
