The University

About the University

There’s no doubt in my mind that Aber offers an excellent education: addressing key issues with first-rate teaching, which in turn is backed up by some of the best research in the UK. We’re firmly rooted in our local community, but addressing today’s key issues on an international scale.

Aber provides a transformative education, and encourages students to become rounded individuals through making the most of their time with us. However, the Aber experience is much more than just studying. Together, our students and staff provide a real community in which students can savour the myriad of opportunities in sport and society.

To top it all, the University is in idyllic countryside on the Welsh coast, and is recognised as one of the safest universities in Britain. Also, Aberystwyth was recently announced as the best UK town by the Academy of Urbanism, recognising the environmental beauty and the social strengths of our community.
