Aberystwyth University

UKUK flagEngland

Aberystwyth University (AU), is a well-balanced university; Arts and Sciences are equally balanced in the curriculum, and there are equal numbers of men and women.  One-third of the 6,100 students are from Wales, with the rest coming from all over the United Kingdom, Ireland, and over 80 other countries around the world.  The campus itself has been voted #1 for student satisfaction in Wales, perhaps due to its various student clubs, sports, live performances, arts, films and its prime location on the beautiful Welsh coastline.

Housing & Meals
