Student Profiles

Sonja Krynetskaya

(BSc Veterinary Biosciences)

"I absolutely loved everything about Aber. Aberystwyth University is honestly a hidden gem and I couldn’t recommend it enough! It's a home away from home in every sense, the friends you make become your family and so do the lecturers (who I cannot praise enough), and every time you return or remember those Aberystwyth nights out you feel nostalgic! Also, Russians are very 'homey' and 'welcoming' people and people in Aber are exactly the same so I felt as if I was at home. My babushka also highly approved of Aberystwyth when she came to visit, and you know that it must be good if a babushka approves! 

Now studying a degree in London I would much rather I was based back in Wales, the difference in experience is massive! Nothing can beat Aberystwyth in my opinion. The accommodation is also incredible (I stayed in the studios) and so are the facilities. My personal favourite is the mini library of the vet record issues in the IBERS building. Seriously, don't think twice about picking Aber! The quality of education Aberystwyth provided is unmatched. Please feel free to contact me directly if you need any more convincing about going to Aberystwyth!"
