Aberystwyth University

Penglais Campus
SY23 3FL
United Kingdom

Aberystwyth is a well-established university with a long tradition of academic excellence, but it is also very forward looking. It is small enough to be friendly and to allow contact across departments, but big enough to have a wide range of study programmes in professional and vocational subjects.

At Aberystwyth we offer our students a tremendous variety of courses, through a flexible structure that is responsive to your needs. These include directly vocational courses and the more academic courses, which can be studied in many different combinations. Our main subject areas include…

Accounting, Finance, Economics, Marketing, Business and Management; Fine Art and Art History; Biological Sciences; Computer Science; Drama, Theatre, Film and Television Studies; Education and Childhood Studies; English and Creative Writing; Environmental Sciences; Equine Courses; European Languages; Geography and Earth Sciences; History and Welsh History; International Politics; Law and Criminology; Mathematics; Physics; Psychology; Rural Sciences; Sport and Exercise Science; Veterinary Biosciences; Welsh, Professional Welsh, Irish and Celtic Studies.

The Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards offered by Aberystwyth are amongst the most valuable and extensive available at any British university. The package of awards we offer includes our prestigious Entrance and Excellence Scholarships, our generous Aberystwyth and Residential Bursaries, Sport and Music Scholarships, and Care Leaver Bursaries.

Sample of financial package available:

Entrance Scholarship – total value over three years: £3,600

Aberystwyth Bursary (means tested) – total value over three years: £3,000

Residential Bursary – first year discount on accommodation: £400

Music Bursary – total value over three years: £1,500

Sports Bursary – total value over three years: £1,500

Thus a student from the UK or EU could be more than £10,000 better off by studying at Aberystwyth.

We offer you a range of high quality accommodation, all of which is conveniently located in Aberystwyth. From ‘traditional’ catered residences, where meals are provided, to our brand new en-suite self-catered accommodation, we can provide you with an option that is best suited to your requirements. Value for money accommodation starts at £78 per week. In order to ensure the highest standards, we have invested over £48m in new student residences Fferm Penglais, adjacent to our student village, we have also recently completed a major upgrading of some residences.
