An inspiration message from Royston Havard, former lecturer in Music at the centre:
27 April 2009
Over the years, some of the foremost academics and writers in Wales have seen fit to be involved in extramural/lifelong learning work. Here are a few names:
R. S. Thomas
D. J. Williams
T. H. Parry-Williams
R. Williams Parry
T. J. Morgan (Rhodri's father)
And what a wonderful experience it must have been to study with any of these eminent persons.
Goronwy Rees, Principal at Aberystwyth during the '50s, said, during an address at an Extramural Tutors' Conference
"...In the work of our College there is no element which is more important or more essential than yours."
And the Aberystwyth Extramural Department taught only Humanities subjects at that time.
Humanities must not be allowed to disappear from the programme!
