Student Profile

Ringkai Pati, studies LLM Law. 

The best things about the University

The University is surrounded by nature and I call the nature element as “Therapy for Study” because it indeed is! That was the very first impression and still is until this very moment. 

Other best things that I personally feel and experience is especially being able to meet and make friends with a lot of other students from many countries. 

It is exciting to hear not only different accents, but also different cultures that we learn from each other here. 

Also, I truly appreciate the facilities the Uni offers such as Sports Centre for numerous sport activities like gym, wall climbing, swimming, football and more. 


Favourite thing about living in Aberystwyth 

The locals are very friendly and warm. 

Also, the town is clean, well organized and beautiful. 

Aberystwyth has nice seafront for a walk, run, having hot drinks at the cafes and to watch the sunset whilst looking at and listening to the seagulls.


What advice would you give to other students coming from the same country?

However, if I were to share my little experience throughout my 4 months of studying and living here now, Aberystwyth and UK as a whole, is completely a different country than Malaysia in term of the culture, language(Welsh is widely used here alongside/as much as English). 

However, it is always an opportunity to discover many things to add to our knowledge and understanding about life generally. 

Know the main purpose of coming here, and that is to study. Thus, set the mind for that goal.

Weather can be challenging but the fact is, the longer we stay in one place, the better we adapt to the environment and in this case, the climate.
