Aberystwyth University is proud to be home to a growing community of Russian students, achieving the highest standards of academic excellence across the wide variety of subjects offered by our institution. We are a committed partner of the prestigious Saint Petersburg State University with regular academic exhange between staff and students.

We are also very privileged to have received a student under the highly-illustrious Scholarship Under the Russian Federation, of which only four are awarded every year.
