Student Profiles


Nickolas Bruetsch

(BA International Politics and Intelligence Studies)

One of my fondest memories of Aberystwyth is sitting on the beach at the end of a long week and watching the sun set beneath the waves. Adjusting to life in Aberystwyth was easy. Everything is within a 15-minute walk from Campus. Although Aberystwyth is small it has just about everything one needs.



Maude Gonthier

(BA Modern Languages - Erasmus Year)

The seafront is beautiful, the town is nice and the university is great. The best memories are the moments I spent with the friends I met here, it was absolutely amazing to meet people from all around the world, and we had really good times in pubs or at the beach.
