International Family Award
Aberystwyth University has a strong connection with its current students and alumni, and often sees generations of families following in the footsteps of their relatives to complete their degrees with us. For this reason, we have developed the International Family Award.
If you are a new, international student (paying international tuition fees) and one of your family relatives studied, or is studying, a degree at Aberystwyth University, you may be eligible for the International Family Award – giving you a £1,000 reduction in tuition fees for every year of your studies.
How to Apply
