Student Profiles

Helene Husebo

(BSc Psychology)

What do you love about Aberystwyth and Aberystwyth University?

I love the feeling of being part of a community both on and off campus. The town allows you to have an active social life outside of academic work with lots of activities available, and the university has setup a safe and supportive environment to learn and grow as a person.

What have you enjoyed most about your course?

I have truly enjoyed the variety of modules that I have been able to choose from that allows me to tailor my degree to my career goals. The lecturers are truly passionate about their subjects and are skilled at teaching, making the coursework exceptionally more interesting and fun to work with.

How did you find adjusting to life in Aberystwyth?

Settling into life in Aberystwyth was so seamless, much due to the wide variety in nationalities at the university and having others around me for support that were going through the same things as me in terms of homesickness or minor cultural confusions. Most students arriving in Aberystwyth have no prior relationships with other students, or very few, and are all looking to get to know new people which makes starting conversations with strangers easier and more common place than I am used to.

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

Bring a camera, bring a smile, and bring an open mind. This is a place of beauty that you do not want to miss, filled with lovely people and a community that accepts you for who you are, regardless of nationality, religion or gender identity.

What is your favourite thing about the campus?

My favourite thing about campus is how absolutely stunning it is. After almost 2 years of studying here I still find new hidden gems where I can just relax and enjoy a sunny day or read a book. I also really enjoy that the university offers a variety of accommodation options at different costs depending on your budget and preferences.

Nora May Engeseth

(BA International Politics) 

Aberystwyth 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 decisions, 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.
