Tuition Fees


Tuition Fees for Students Starting

The UK and Welsh Governments have confirmed that EU students commencing their studies in the academic year 2021/22 will no longer be eligible for home fees status.

Fees for EU students will therefore be charged in line with international fees from 2021/22 onwards.  


This will not apply to Irish nationals living in the UK and Ireland whose right to study and to access benefits and services will be preserved on a reciprocal basis for UK and Irish nationals under the Common Travel Area arrangement.

These increases would also apply for the proportional fees charged for Year Abroad and Year in Industry.

Student Profiles

Francesca Andreozzi

(MA Politics, Media and Performance)


"Aberystwyth has all the benefits of a small town with the cultural ambition of a metropolis. Aber is very artistically vibrant, with live music events and DJ sets. At the same time, you will always have the space to spend some time by yourself. Whether it is with a walk in the woods or on the beach, there is always a place to hide and breath."



Sofia Marcolini

(BSc Psychology)


"I think it’s the perfect place where you can really get attached to every place and person. It’s lovely and the town is full of students, so a lot of things can always be done, for sure having fun here is not difficult. Sunny days are amazing and the landscapes are breath-taking."

Massimo Marletto

MSc (Econ) International Management


Aber was for me a peaceful, lively, international university town by an often stormy sea, surrounded by relaxing but steep green hills: a sort of landlocked paradise logistically difficult to reach, emotionally difficult to leave. With a landscape similar to the Italian region I came from (Liguria), I felt at home at first sight: Moneglia-Aberystwyth, more than one thousand miles from one friendly place to another!

I have so many nice memories ... first of all the people I met there, from the students from all around the world to the university staff, always very friendly and helpful. Secondly, the atmosphere of the town: romantic, mysterious, cultivated, proud and brave (you need to be brave to live at the mouth of a "winding" river!). Thirdly ... well, the nice walks at Tanybwlch beach, the Sunday market - Car boot sale on Clarach Bay beach, the trips to Mwnt (what a nice place) and Aberaeron, the warm university flat in Waunfawr, the musical "The Sound of Music" at the Arts centre, some friends who came to visit me (and who did not manage to open the entrance door of the seafront hotel they were staying due to the strong wind), the smile of one of the library wardens, a crow with a broken wing which I was feeding regularly ... very simple things which in Aber, where possibly time seems to go slower, you manage to appreciate to the full!

While in Aber I was a constant visitor to the Careers Office: it was there that I found a job vacancy for a junior research analyst position for an international organisation in the sugar sector based in Paris. With the help of the Careers advisors, I applied and, well, got the job! I spent eight years in Paris, so I could say that Aberystwyth brought me to Paris and that ... yes, there is life after Aberystwyth!!

After Paris I worked as a consultant in the agri-food sector for an NGO in Brussels and for a research company in Bologna (Italy). It was then time for me to try a change of career and I went into tourism marketing: I worked for a Congress Centre in Genoa (Italy) and for a Leisure Company in Lorca (Spain).

Now, besides freelance consultancy, I am establishing my own business in the wine and clothing sectors.

So, how has the Aber degree helped? I had already a degree in Political Science from an Italian university and getting an MSc (Econ) in International management at Aber gave me a more complete and higher profile to enter the international job market.
