ON THE COVER: Now at week 66, the first phase of University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s £300 million SA1 Swansea Waterfront development is 70% complete.
Twenty-two new jobs have been created at the development, alongside opportunities for 12 apprentices and 17 work experience placements. With a total of 22 welsh subcontractors working on the project, to date £18.5million worth of contracts have been secured by Wales-based businesses.
Leading libraries: University libraries are changing rapidly to keep up with learning trends and the increasing demands from fee-paying students, with a newfound focus on flexibility and variety. These days libraries are less about being solemn spaces of solace, but bustling community one-stop-shops where students can learn and live at the same time.
