Why Aberystwyth?

Aberystwyth is a beautiful and bustling seaside town that sits on the west coast of mid Wales.

In 2015, Aberystwyth was officially crowned the UK’s "Greatest Town" at the prestigious Academy of Urbanism Awards, recognising the fantastic community here.

During term time, the town’s population of just over 13,000 is boosted by almost 8,000 students, creating a busy and cosmopolitan environment within an area of outstanding beauty. Aberystwyth is also a very safe and secure place to be, recognised as the safest place to study in Wales, and one of the safest in the UK.
