    Hey everyone! I've been hearing a lot of positive things about Aberystwyth universities international relations repuation, and was thinking about applying after my fourth year.

    I am currently a political science major at a Canadian university which lists its GPA on a 9.0 scale. I currently have a 6.0/9.0 also seen as a B. I can get into most schools in Canada as my last 2 years are much higher, and most only look at the last 2, but Aberystwyth looks and sounds breathtaking. However my cumulative GPA is a B and UK only takes in account Cgpa.

    So with that said, has anyone applied from a Canadian school and gotten in with a similar GPA? Or does anyone know the grade requirements generally asked when getting into postgraduate studies at Aberystwyth?

    Thanks!

    Have you looked at the entry requirements on the website? That should give you an idea.

    I did my BSc Econ at Aber and I have a Canadian friend who visited for a semester, from Vancouver, and she loved it. Aber InterPol is a wonderful department and Aberystwyth is a lovely place to live and study!
