There were two reasons I decided to study at Aber – the department is the oldest in the world, established in 1919, and its prestigious reputation reached me even before I began thinking about studying at Aberystwyth University.

Nonetheless, life at Aber is not only about writing essays, sitting in the library or going to seminars. The department never fails to offer new opportunities to go beyond your basic academic duties. There are public lectures, research seminars and talks given by guest speakers almost every week. A talk was given by the former Director of the MI5, Baroness Eliza Manningham-Buller, for example.

If you are looking to explore and expand your knowledge further, with the wholehearted support from the academic community to constantly better yourself and achieve more, then Aberystwyth University is your place to study.
