Aberystwyth University

Aberystwyth, Wales, United Kingdom
There’s no doubt in my mind that Aberystwyth University offers an excellent education: addressing key issues with first-rate teaching, which in turn is backed up by some of the best research in the UK.To top it all, the University is in idyllic countryside on the Welsh coast, and is recognised as one of the safest universities in Britain. Also, Aberystwyth was recently announced as the best UK town by the Academy of Urbanism, recognising the environmental beauty and the social strengths of our community.

About

History

The establishment of Aberystwyth University was the work of a small group of patriots, led by Hugh Owen, a London Welshman, who sought from the 1850s onwards to raise enough money by public and private subscription to establish a college of university status in Wales. In 1872, the University was opened in a half-finished hotel building on the sea front in Aberystwyth.

Education

Aber provides a transformative education, and encourages students to become rounded individuals through making the most of their time with us. However, the Aber experience is much more than just studying. Together, our students and staff provide a real community in which students can savour the myriad of opportunities in sport and society.

Research

Research is an integral part of Aberystwyth University's mission and work. It is supported by a Research Strategy, the purpose of which is to ensure that the University can continue to produce a significant volume of high quality work and respond to the rapidly changing environment in the UK in relation to research and its funding.
