What do you love about Aberystwyth and Aberystwyth University?
I love the environment and atmosphere Aberystwyth provides the best, especially during summer, it feels like you’re in a completely different place!
What have you enjoyed most about your course?
I have been incredibly lucky that I had very supportive and encouraging tutors during my courses, and the connections I made with my lecturers made me enjoy the courses a lot more and overcome my shyness when it came to asking questions about the materials taught.
How did you find adjusting to life in Aberystwyth?
At first, I was feeling homesick being so far away from home. But making a lot of friends through my classes and extracurricular activities helped me feel more comfortable and at ease at Aberystwyth.
What advice would you give someone considering studying at Aberystwyth University?
Take any opportunity you can get, sometimes you have no idea what you would be missing out on if you don’t take the initiative!
Have you joined any student clubs or societies and what have you enjoyed about them?
During my bachelors, I decided to restart the Animal and Veterinary Society with a few of my friends and have been on the committee ever since, I’m also an active member of the Showdance sports club since my first year at University. My favourite thing about joining a society or a club is having the opportunity to socialise with people at university who are in different years and doing different degrees, it’s such a great way to make friends with common interests as well!

"With a spectacular seaside view and cosy atmosphere, Aberystwyth is one of the best environments in the UK to keep you focused on your study. Studying at Aberystwyth University is one of the best times in my life, where I had the chance to excel in my academics while having met with my life-long friends. Big thanks to my tutor Carl, who had guided me, besides my study, on independent and critical thinking during the three years of study, which is beneficial for a lifetime and improves my career in the insurance industry. For those of you who are about to pursue your study at Aber, I'd suggest you get yourself ready to start your wonderful university time in a frosty town! Do make sure you can cook homestyle dishes to treat yourself when you miss home! I'm currently working in a Ship Management Company as an Insurance Executive."
