Student Profile


Cealla Powell

(BA Irish Language and Literature and English Literature)

"Whilst there’s lots of things to love about Aber, my favourite things are the atmosphere in town, it’s always busy and the town is such a nice place, especially the seafront. It was strange adjusting to life in Aber at first, but I really enjoyed living on my own and meeting new people. "



Pippa Kinneen

(BA Film and Television Studies)

"I love practically everything about Aberystwyth, it’s such a beautiful town. The nights out are so much fun, especially when you bump into someone else and realise they are from your home country (or even home town) which is one of the most exciting and happy feelings when you are so far away from home."
