Wider Information Set

 

We want to make it as easy as possible for current and prospective students and members of the general public to find information about Aberystwyth University. In England institutions are required by their Funding Council to provide a Wider Information Set (WIS) of specific information. This is not required in Wales, but we welcome this as best practice in transparency and ease of access to information and have chosen to provide a Wider Information Set for Aberystwyth, based on the useful model provided for England.
