Think Big. Think Wales.

Think Aberystwyth University.

Aberystwyth University has it all – a historic institution with a superb reputation, located in a friendly, safe town on the beautiful coast of mid-Wales.

Aberystwyth was founded in 1872 as the first University institution in Wales. With a long tradition of academic excellence, it now has more than 10,000 students studying in a beautiful campus location overlooking Cardigan Bay.

Aberystwyth University is a great place to learn about diversity and what it means to be in a warm, welcoming, and active community. Looking out the library windows and seeing the beautiful view was one of the best parts of my time at Aberystwyth. The town has a lively arts and entertainment scene – there’s always something to do.
