Aberystwyth University (Prifysgol Aberystwyth) is located on the beautiful coast of mid Wales, surrounded by breath-taking scenery of rolling hills and sea. The university, part of the local town affectionately known as “Aber”, forms a vibrant cosmopolitan cultural hub. This beautiful town offers some of the most picturesque views in Wales. Whatever your interest, there is plenty to do in Aberystwyth; with beautiful sandy beaches just a stone’s throw away, and the Cambrian Mountains on our doorstep. There’s no beauty quite like the beauty of Aberystwyth. Students love its location and social life, while it’s internationally renowned for the quality of its teaching and research.
