Caru Aber International Award
Aberystwyth University holds a special place in the hearts of anyone who has studied here and we are keen to support students if they wish to continue studying with us. That is why we developed both the AberGrad Award and the Caru Aber (Love Aber) International Award.
Whilst the AberGrad Award provides financial support for any students who previously completed a full degree at Aberystwyth University, the Caru Aber International Award gives a £1,000 tuition fee discount (for every year of study) to any international fee-paying students who spent a period of time studying with us as an associate student. This includes studies on Exchange or Study Year Abroad programmes (either one semester or two) as well as on any of our Summer Schools.
