Overview

Aberystwyth is a well-established but forward-looking university with a long tradition of academic excellence. It is small enough to be friendly and to allow contact across departments, but big enough to offer a broad portfolio of study programmes across academic and vocational subjects.

Aberystwyth offers students a rich variety of courses, delivered as part of a highly flexible structure that is responsive to their needs. These include directly vocational courses and the more academic courses, which can be studied in a range of different combinations.  

Located on the one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, the vibrant town of Aberystwyth offers an interesting and varied experience. It is home to both the National Library of Wales (to which students have free access) and an award-winning Arts Centre. The University's Penglais campus was the first in Wales to be granted the Green Flag award for the quality of its green estate. Aberystwyth was named University of the Year for Teaching Quality in The Times / Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 and was one of the best universities for overall student satisfaction in the 2017 National Student Survey. Encouraged by the University’s reputation, students from over 90 countries have been attracted to Aberystwyth.
