Student Profile

Karolina Śliżewska

(BA History)

"Aber has some good connection with other places so I was able to visit other areas (Snowdonia, North and South Wales) and I can say that Aberystwyth is the most charming place in Wales. My favourite part was volunteering at the National Library of Wales, so many opportunities for students here"


Ania Rolewska

(PHD International Politics)

"Don't be deceived by its size - it has a lot of facilities, and attracts a diversity of people that you would not find in a bigger location. Aber is very small, so by the end of that week - for better or worse - you are likely to know half of the student population here!"
