Aberystwyth University (Prifysgol Aberystwyth) is located on the beautiful coast of mid Wales, surrounded by breath-taking scenery of rolling hills and sea. The university, part of the local town affectionately known as “Aber”, forms a vibrant cosmopolitan cultural hub and is the safest place in Wales and amongst the safest in the UK to study (The Complete University Guide 2016).

Students love its location and social life, while it’s internationally renowned for the quality of its teaching and research.

Aberystwyth University has six institutes:

  • Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences
  • Education, Graduate and Professional Development
  • Geography, History, Politics and Psychology
  • Literature, Languages and Creative Arts
  • Institue of Business and Law
  • Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science

It’s recently invested in new student accommodation along with a £35m UK Innovation and EnterpriseCampus at Gogerddan. It also plans to refurbish its Old College, which sits on Aberystwyth’s seafront.

Students say:

“The best! I wish I never had to leave! It is such a lovely uni with amazing people and a lovely location. It’s the best uni by far because it takes everyone and still manages to make each individual shine! I love it here!”

“These have been the best three years of my life, and studying here has allowed me to grow as a person in a warm and friendly space with the added bonus of dolphins and the seaside!”
