Student Profiles

Nora May Engeseth

(BA International Politics)


The location, the course itself, feeling like home, being able to live at the seafront, and the affordability of the course compared to other universities in Britain, while maintaining the same quality of teaching, were all factors that influenced my decision to come here. It was clearly a good decision, as I have loved every second of it!

Benedicte Halvorsen

(BSc Business Management with Politics) 


Aberystwyth University gave me unforgettable memories, friends for the rest of my life, and a wonderful start to my professional life. The professors showed genuine interest in their students' futures and passion for their subjects in both the departments I belonged to. The barbecue, the beaches and the nature all makes Aber a perfect place to study.


After finishing my studies in Aberystwyth, I got accepted into the London School of Economics to read for an MSc in Strategic Communications. I finished my MSc in 2019, and moved to the arctic circle to work as a sales and marketing coordinator for Norwegian football club FK Bodø/Glimt - who this year won the league. Aber gave me the space to grow and learn in beautiful surroundings to make this start to my career possible. 


My advice to anyone from Norway going to Aber is to experience everything you can: join a society, live in student halls, work hard and take all the opportunities Aber will give you!
