Studying for a degree at UWTSD Lampeter is a truly unique Higher Educational experience. For example, we can offer you small teaching groups, individual tutorials, a friendly community, excellent support for students and their particular needs, research active lecturers, and an archive where students can browse through medieval manuscripts. Heritage Studies students benefit from proximity to an incredibly rich local, cultural and historic environment, in an area where Castles, memorials, visitor sites, heritage centres and places of special historic interest are never far away. Students will also have access to the Roderic Bowen Library and Archives, a special collection of rare books and manuscripts (which includes over 35,000 rare printed works, 8 medieval manuscripts, around 100 post medieval manuscripts, and 69 medieval incunabula) and the Lampeter Museum, a museum jointly owned by the University in which students can do placements and work experience through their three years of study. The real strength of the programme is its orientation towards future employment for the student whether in a museum, archive, heritage site, field school or as an education officer.
