Student Profiles

Avishaa Kulkarni

(BSc Psychology)

"Ab‌‌er has a very close knit community with very kind people. Aber being a student town, it was very easy to adjust here. I was easily accustomed to the student life here with tons of friends who became a second family. I was always treated like its own by Aber!"


Sayantan Patra

(LLM International Law and Criminology of Armed Conflict)

"The best memory I can recall is the International Students meet up held in Aberystwyth. The student representatives of each country portrayed their culture, food, societal norms which was a delightful and enriching experience for us. I represented my country India, wore our ethnic dress Kurta and Pyajama, cooked Chicken Pakora and Gajar Halwa ( Carrot Halwa) which was very much enjoyed by the guests and participants of the event. My fellow batch mate performed Bharat Natyam which was very much appreciated by the audience, some students from Africa were colouring the faces of other students of their national flags."


Vikram Kittagali Mahadevaiah

(MSc Livestock Science)

"Aberystwyth as a town is fabulous and the best part about it is the coastline, and the most friendly people out there, they are truly amazing and welcoming. Aberystwyth university has made me more confident in life as a student. It has taught me to work independently."
