Student Profile


Lucia Martinez

(BSc Genetics)

What do you love about Aberystwyth and Aberystwyth University?

I love the town being by the sea and surrounded by nature. It is amazing how beautiful Aberystwyth is! What I love the most about Aberystwyth University is their willingness to make sure their students enjoy their time at university. They offer a wide range of support, from older students showing you around the campus to assistance with student finance or mental health problems

What have you enjoyed most about your course?

I really enjoyed how my course was delivered, the lecturers made lectures enjoyable and would be very receptive to feedback. I appreciated how if I ever had a question about the lecture I could just have a chat with them after a lecture or just send an email and I would always receive a helpful answer.

How did you find adjusting to life in Aberystwyth?

When I first came to Aberystwyth I was worried there would be a language barrier where I wouldn’t be able to get my point across. However, I quickly realised everyone around me (flatmates, lecturers, classmates and even the wider community) was willing to make me feel welcomed and understood

What advice would you give someone considering studying at Aberystwyth University?

My honest advice would be to go for it! It is an awesome experience that you are not likely to get in many other universities, thanks to the size of the uni making friends is easy and you get to know your lectures by name which makes it that much easier and enjoyable. Also… make sure you bring a raincoat!

Have you joined any student clubs or societies and what have you enjoyed about them?

I joined the Spanish society in my 1st year, I enjoyed getting to speak in Spanish every now and then as well as attending the Spanish nights the society would organise. The rest of my time in Aberystwyth I joined the ACV (Conservation Volunteers), despite COVID disrupting a lot of the activities the society had planned I still got to enjoy beach cleans, dolphin watching, movie and game nights, etc.. and got to meet friendly and like-minded people who cared about how we treat the Earth and the things living in it.

Alumni Profile

Celia Rodríguez González

(BSc Economics)

"I think that the best thing about Aber is that you have everything you need every day in a small town. It is a very calm and quiet place (Although its night life is amazing also) and the seafront is very peaceful. Although I had missed my family, if someone told me to go back next September I would accept without thinking it too much."

Beatriz Gómez Leal

(PGCE Modern Foreign Languages)

" It is very easy to fall in love with Aberystwyth. A place full of life and unforgettable sunsets. It has the charm of a town but the possibilities of a city. It is a magical town with beautiful views. It was easy to adapt myself to this cit,. People are all very kind and have a heart of gold. The atmosphere is always very international and you feel like at home."
