As a student, you will be living in a vibrant, cosmopolitan bilingual university town, between the rolling Cambrian mountains and the stunning coastline of Cardigan Bay. You’ll be part of a campus university with its own sports centre, a busy Arts Centre; and you’ll be next door to the National Library of Wales, only one in five copyright libraries in the UK which houses every book ever published in the UK.

Aberystwyth Business School offers a stimulating learning environment, and our degrees transform the future workforce. Our degree schemes attract recognition from a range of professional bodies e.g. ACCA, CIMA, CIPFA to name a few. We are also an accredited CIM Graduate Gateway centre, which means that you can study towards a CIM qualification (Chartered Institute of Marketing) whilst studying for a degree, or gain exemptions on CIM modules.
