    Hi everyone! :awesome:

    Welcome to the Aberystwyth University official 2018 Applicants thread!

    This thread is for anyone who's applied, or thinking of applying to Aberystwyth University for 2018 entry. :smartass: You can use this space to connect with other applicants before coming here in September. :cute:

    I'll introduce myself - I'm Lleucu, I came to Aberystwyth as a student in September 2014, and graduated with a degree in Welsh last year. By now, I'm the official rep for Aberystwyth University on TSR - so if you have any questions about the University, student life, or simply life at Aberystwyth, ask away! :thumbsup:

    Kick this thread off by introducing yourself, and which course you're thinking of studying at Aberystwyth! :crown:

    Hey,

    My name is Silvia, I am from Bulagria, and I recently received my conditional offer for an MA in International Politics and am seriously considering it I wanted to ask about accommodation. I personally believe that univeristy accommodation is the safest and easiest to get, is that true ? And will it be easy to find a part-time job, because I want to work while studying, and when I arrive where can I get advise on student part-time jobs Thanks in advance

    Hello.
    I am Radoslaw (traditionally speaking Roegner), from Niedersleschien (currently Lower Silesian Voivodeship in Poland)

    I was on Applicant Visiting Days at 31.01. That was a loong journey all the way from Poland. But, I am really excited (as much as someone with Asperger syndrome can be excited) to say my visit paid off. I just get an unconditional offer for W4A2, Liberal Arts (Integrated Master's) I think it's due to scholarship exams on 30.01 but that info is not confirmed yet.
    You have great community, as I saw, many societes, but you also have that *** hill from city to uni. I was really glad when I climb it.
    Course leader, dr. W**** is a really fine man. In my country I know many university professors due to my family and family's allies, but I never met someone like him. Professionalist who did not eat a stick. First thing, I was shocked when he told me to call Him by name, not "sir".

    Now I am looking/hunting for work in Aber. I want to be financially independent from my family, but have no idea where to look for said work.
    Simply, I am from other country. In my country I know where to look, But in Aber? No.
