Student Profiles

Yu-Han Cai

(MPhil International Politics)

"The best thing about Aberystwyth University is that I experienced a friendly and positive learning environment. It is the best place for an international student as the faculty staffs are so kind to provide support. I chose to go to Aber because I like being part of a diverse student body. The world is a big place, and I thought attending a big school would better prepare me for life in the real world. Also, Aber has a very strong school of social sciences, and I wanted to study under the best minds in the country. It also offered the specialization I was seeking, and I wanted to fast-track my education. My favorite moments in Aber are sitting by the sea enjoying fish and chips, and also having brunch in cafes. I would highly recommend students from Taiwan to choose Aberystwyth University for their education, it will give them a wonderful experience as the environment and people there are so friendly and they will feel satisfied with the academic support from the uni most importantly."
