Studying psychology, I was grateful to my university for providing a wide range of interesting topics that helped me discover more about areas I am passionate in as well as providing the chance to learn about areas I had never considered before. Lecturers were friendly and helpful, and it was easy to form great relationships with them and receive assistance where needed. The university has a warm and welcoming environment that supports the learning well.View more
It’s hard for me to review the whole programme because eventually, I didn’t finish Uni.
That’s why I will refer to the atmosphere and general Uni experience.
I loved it there although the time I spent there was short. I was amazed with how many cheerful and nice people I met there. Not only the students but townsfolks and whole Uni Staff were just awesome. Everybody was always willing to help with a lot of joy at the same time.
It’s not the views it’s not the walls but people that make a place a good place.
They say don’t judge a book by its cover.
I got to know about this Uni from its catalogue cover and this beautiful view got me Like… I need to study there so I did it. The beautiful views attracted me and beautiful people made me wanna stay there.
Even though I was far away from home I felt that I had a family there.
It was generally a good experience with ups and downs mainly because of the hill that we had to climb up but at least it kept us fit.
As I said I didn’t finish University but I did find my path, I did find my purpose in life During those times.
My university experience has been incredible. I could not have asked for a better experience. From a beautiful campus, modern facilities and an incredible student social life. I would recommend this uni to everyone.View more
Aberystwyth University is one of the best universities in the UK. There is a very high teaching quality and every student is important. The Professors and staff are always there to help with anything you might need. I love how passionate and ready to help they all are. The study content is fulfilling, there are various courses one could choose from. There is a wide variety of affordable accommodation one could choose from starting from 85-90 pounds per week and reaching no more than 140 per week depending on the choice. Moreover, there is a huge number of societies one could join so that everyone is represented. Don’t let the lack of nightclubs put you off. There are many pubs and bars to make up for it. The town is a small picturesque town with very friendly locals and plenty of small shops to choose from. Overall, I couldn’t recommend it more. It’s a place that is constantly upgrading to what the students need.View more

I love how passionate and ready-to-help the staff are on my course, a lot of resources and the ability to request resources we do not have. The town is great and the university is a great community in itself, the university is constantly changing and upgrading according to what students want and need.View more
Aberystwyth is the birthplace of international relations. But it’s so much more than that.__It is a warm and welcoming place, but most of all it is challenging and it gives you the space to develop as a person and as an academic. I couldn’t recommend it moreView more
Aberystwyth is the best university I could have ever chosen! It is a place where people are very much integrated and the students are one friendly society. The teaching quality is very high, a student in Aber is not anyone hidden in the corner of the lecture room, everyone is important and gets the attention when needed. The Professors and staff are always there to help out in absolutely anything. The facilities in the Uni are very much convenient, spacious and modern. I can’t imagine a better place to study than Aber!View more
