Student Profiles

Jittipat Poonkham

(PhD International Politics)

"Town and gown. A cosmopolitan, vibrantly diverse and friendly town, together with an extremely serious academic community - literally, gown - emotionally cherish and logistically support my being in Aberystwyth, both in terms of academic and extracurricular activities. One of my best memories is the way in which Aberystwyth as a bounded community within Wales and the UK in general is conspicuously resilient and amicable to friends and peoples beyond borders."



Maythavee Vichienthong

"I was able to quickly adjust to life in Aberystwyth with the help of the wonderful staff and students. I felt very welcome from the first day of my arrival."
