At Aberystwyth we recognise that choosing a university is about more than just a great education, it's about finding your home away from home.
There is nowhere quite like Aberystwyth: no other University which offers the unique combination of long academic tradition; outstandingly beautiful location, beneath the mountains and beside the sea; a centre of national and regional, cultural and commercial, importance; a campus combining one of only six copyright libraries in Britain with a Beacon status Arts Centre and state-of-the-art facilities.
We are located in the centre of the beautiful Cardigan Bay, with the Irish Sea to the west and the Cambrian Mountains to the east, so we have the seaside as well as unspoilt mountainous countryside to enjoy. Our town is friendly and welcoming, with a great mix of people, as well as a great mix of shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs. The beach is a great place to relax.
During the next three years, Aberystwyth University is investing over £100m in enhancing and extending our already excellent residential and teaching facilities. These represent a major investment in the facilities which will be available to you. They will ensure that you will benefit from world class teaching and learning facilities to ensure that you have all the skills you will require to succeed in the world of work. This represents one of the most significant investments in the University’s history. Together they will ensure that Wales’s oldest university will be well placed to survive the challenges of the twenty-first century – Aberystwyth’s third century of existence.
