Student Profiles


Garance Le Vaguerèse

(BA International Politics and Intelligence Studies)

"I love being in Aber for the people and lifestyle, if anyone asks me it was one of the best choices I made to go study here. The place is amazing and living by the seaside is truly a plus, as all the sceneries around the campus are great to walk to with friends."





Leena Sarah Farhat

"I love living by the sea, the surrounding countryside and the people but most of all I love living in Wales and Welsh culture. I feel like I belong, even though I am an EU student and Wales has a special place in my heart."
