The excerpt I quoted didn't mention the University, but the article from
which it came made it clear that John Jones went to Glasgow University; he
was a student at Carmarthen before winning his Williams scholarship.
Scholars took Theology degrees at Glasgow University - that's where he went for
two years, but he then lost his scholarship so did not complete his degree.

Appointed September 1834.
Jones (John), student at Carmarthen, previous
to his appointment. Though a man of very good abilities,
he was in the course of the session 1835-6, deprived of
the Exhibition, and obliged to leave College
Oh dear! So he never got his degree.
The Carmarthen Academy (which I repeat is not to be confused with Trinity
College) had no powers to issue any degrees as early as 1836.
In pre-St David's College Lampeter days, students for the Anglican ministry
in St David's diocese often studied on one of the courses offered by the
five episcopally-approved Grammar Schools at Ystrad Meurig, Carmarthen
Queen Elizabeth - once again not to be confused with the presbyterian
academy or with Trinity College), Brecon, Lampeter (i.e. the old grammar
school), and Cardigan.
