Student Testimonials

Tino Garapasi

Course Studied: BSc (Hons) Computer Science, 2018

What I do now: Web Consultant in Hertfordshire

"Nature was definitely my favourite thing about living in Aberystwyth. Taking walks by the sea coast, hiking in the mountains, relaxing and even studying at the beach, watching the starlings by the pier. Nothing can come close. At university, I was surrounded by many extremely brilliant students and this alone rubbed off and motivated me to be my best. There are many clubs you can be part of depending on your interests. An example is the Afro-Caribbean society where many Africans and Caribbeans meet for social activities. There are also many nationalities from around the world. So just relax and expect to be received well and treated with respect and dignity. Come expecting to have a fun time and I can assure you a great time."
