    I haven't looked into it recently but the U of W has slowly been disolving into a collection of it's former constituent parts. I believe that all the schools are still in existence and operating (Cardiff, Swansea, Lampeter, Bangor, etc.) but they're just not formally connected into a "University of Wales system. Under the circumstances it's probably a good thing.

    The University of Wales was caught up in a scandal in which degrees validated by external colleges or overseas colleges were gotten by cheating. The U of W has been the center of concerns about quality management for its validated degrees. U of W Trinity St. David is now awarding degress unders it original 200 year old Chaarter and has taken over many of the assets of the U of wales. It may be validating thise degrees.

    I wonder if that had anything to do with the California BPPVE questioning the University of Wales Ph.D. held by one of the academic deans at Columbia Pacific University?

    Just an update. The joint Tsinghua-Wales MBA in China is now validated by Bangor University.
