Integrated Foundation Year Students

Welcome to the 2022/23 academic year. We have created this page to help Integrated Foundation Year students navigate your first week with us at Aberystwyth University

There are a number of in-person sessions over the week, and some online activities. This list only covers the Integrated Foundation Year scheme – students doing a foundation in Geography/Human Geography/Physical Geography/Environmental Science/Environmental Earth Science/Sociology/English and Creative Writing/Psychology/Television and Film Studies/Drama and Theatre Studies/History/Education/International Politics (&Military History)/Law, and Criminology.

Students taking foundations in other subjects should look at the Big Welcome pages for those departments where you will have your own induction programme.
