Up to date facilities to what I need to use. Few buildings that are older need work done. Course can be interesting but mostly boring. Don’t go to the students union as I focus on my assignments ahead of drinking

Aberystwyth is a lovely university town on the very coast of West Wales. It's very inclusive with the town, just down the bottom of the hill. Taxis are cheap - only £4-£5 to go up the hill to the uni/accommodation from anywhere in town. It's a lovely university with great lecturers, mostly all of whom have written their own works!

When you arrive at this uni its all glits and glam, but from the moment you return in your second year they really hit you hard. In my department they have introduced the merging of second and third year modules. so every year a new set of modules is up for either second or third years to partake in. but when it comes to the marking of the modules they tell you that they mark them separately but in much of my feedback in assignments and exams i get told that its not at the standard of a third year student. i am currently a second year student, being marked at a third year grade. The student union is always clean but often unorganised in its operationd. My overall expericence can be summed up in one word so far 'Meh'

The university has some amazing staff that are willing to help with any problem faced when studying here. The town and scenery is also very beautiful.

I thoroughly enjoy studying at Aberystwyth university and I feel my course has the perfect modules to lead me onto the right career path for me and I am positive I will land myself a great career after studying here and would highly recommend to anyone.

I has been one of the most wonderful experiences of my life. Wonderful people to support you both amongst students and staff. I wouldn't want to choose any other place to study. The sea itself, the landscapes and the opportunities are amazing as well. There are many facilities available, a gym for a student friendly price or for free if you live at university accommodation.

This uni is great to me mainly because of the course (physical geography) where it feels complete i.e. lecturer's seem very interested in what they teach, content is very broad and interesting and the facilities may not all be amazing but are of a very high standard generally. The people are all friendly and there's a homely feel to the campus. The students union is good although the actual building and facilities here could do with an refurbishment. I feel the lecturer's deserve much more than they get from the uni at the moment for example the most recent strikes due to pensions.

Loved the University and its atmosphere. It's definitely a university town with some great beeches to spend round a fire with friends in the evenings.Only issue for me was when I lived at the bottom of the hill and the hike up to the Uni campus. However the bars, restaurants and other establishments more than made up for it, and there was also busses to help. As for the departments, I can only comment on mine (international Politics) and they were extraordinarily helpful and I would recommend to anyone who wants to study in the fields of history or Politics to come here. The additional Crisis game day the department hosted at the manor house was a major positive in their favour along with them working with the society.

Aberystwyth University is good but they keep changing my course modules, even after I applied for certain ones

Class university, great night life, and good education, the campus location is ideal to the accommodation, and is the accommodation is nice, and relatively cheap as well. Student union is quite chilled compared to other universities, with just a bar and a few rec rooms. But atmosphere is still good. Food is also good in the cafes around the campus, but maybe a bit expensive.

The University itself is a great place to study. A calm seaside town gives a good vibe all your round, especially with the amazing surrounding or mountains and the sea, this is a one of a kind University town

Though some of the teaching staff are passionate and make the course worthwhile. There are many modules that overlap in their assignments and make it feel as though there is no point in learning the module.

In my opinion the Aberystwyth University was the best possible choice. Location of the town is really impressing the views are just beautifull, the people are really friendly and of course the teaching quality is very high

Amazing university feels like being at home, couldn't be happier with my choice of coming here. Every single staff member cares about the students and will always fit in time to see us if we need to talk. The facilities are very good and there is more upgrading to buildings being done ... I love this university
