Student Profile

Sara Guerreiro

(BA Childhood Studies)

"The people are very nice, the weather is not as bad as I thought, the views are amazing, the town itself is so beautiful, and I really am in love with this town. I will miss the friends that I made, the views, the sea, the nice people that say hello when you pass by them in the street."



Luís António Marques da Silva

(PHD Biological Science)

"Aberystwyth is very peaceful and relaxing as a town. Being surrounded at the same time by the sea and the countryside provides you with an experience of being able to feel relaxed after a working day; a good balance between your professional/personal life is crucial."
