HRH The Prince of Wales
Students studying towards University of Wales degrees were recently invited to meet HRH The Prince of Wales at his Welsh residence, Llwynywermod, near Myddfai in Llandovery.
As Chancellor of the University of Wales, the Prince maintains close links with the University and its students by extending an annual invitation to a select number of budding scholars to learn more about their studies and aspirations for the future.
Each year, Welsh universities offering University of Wales degrees nominate students to meet their Chancellor. This year, there were students representing Swansea Metropolitan University, University of Wales Institute Cardiff (UWIC), University of Wales Newport, Glyndŵr University, University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Bangor University, Swansea University and Aberystwyth University.
Having met the Prince, Aldo Tagliabue, a student of Swansea University said:
“My experience of meeting HRH the Prince of Wales was great, and I found him a very nice and open-minded man, who was really interested in meeting each one of us in a familiar and genuine way. I will remember this event all my life.”
Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wales, Professor Marc Clement, added:
“His Royal Highness, as Chancellor of the University, takes a keen interest in all our activities, and we are delighted that students of the University of Wales are able to meet him at his home in West Wales and to talk about their university experience and their hopes for their future careers.”
