Hi Chris,

I am a current Third Year Animal Science Undergraduate and I am happy to answer any questions you have regarding life here in Aberystwyth.

Outside of studying you are pretty much free to do what you want, I think in first year I had 20 hours contact time and then you are free to meet friends, go to town and just enjoy life! (picnics on the beach are litttt!!)

I play football for the digs league inside the university where we train once a week and compete in a league at the weekend, there are so many sports and societies to get involved with and you honestly would be surprised with what you may find yourself involved in.
The nightlife in Aberystwyth is what you make of it, it can be lively and fun if involved with a social (which there are many) and is such a great laugh. We have many pubs in Aber and 2 nightclubs (not city standard) but they are ok!

Now let me not pull the wool over your eyes, this place has not as much a city has to offer and if your looking for bright lights, busy vibes and lots of shops then this may not be the place for you.

You say you live in England so I presume you will be away from home for some time during term, there is honestly plenty to do and just if you embrace it and get yourself involved with as much as you can time will fly!!

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact me

Thanks for replying to my message I really appreciate it .

Aberystwyth sound great for me as I’m not really into the city life and I love exploring and being outdoors, which is difficult here as there’s little exploration areas where I live. I was wondering if there was any form of group chat where I could talk to people who are potential going to Aber uni this year and are taking my course.

I would like to get an idea of the people I’m going to be studying with and hanging out with during my time at Aber university.

Hi Chris,

Sorry for the delay in response, I have found out there will be a "Freshers" Facebook group being created in the coming weeks for 2019 applicants, Keep and eye on the UMAberSU Facebook page for details on how to join this once it starts up, from there usually people will create a Fferm Penglais specific group chat, though I don't know if this is private or moderated by the university.

Hope this helps!

Hi there ChrisOlet


My apologies for the late response, however it's great to hear that you are considering Aberystwyth University to study Bioveterinary Science at Aberystwyth!


I have just finished my third year at Aberystwyth University so can hopefully offer some helpful advice and information about student life in Aberystwyth outside of your studies.


There are lots of fantastic societies at the University, most of which hold weekly socials which are a brilliant way of meeting new people and socialising with people who hold similar interests to yourself. A list of the societies on offer and some information about each one is available on the AberSU website, https://www.abersu.co.uk/teamaber/so...societieslist/. There are a number of societies which give members the opportunity to take part in a number of outdoor activities such as mountaineering, hiking and mountain biking across Wales in areas like Snowdonia, which is a fantastic opportunity for you to explore Wales in your spare time!


The town itself is home to a number of bars, clubs and cafes which cater towards students as there is very much a 'student town' feel in Aberystwyth.

Please let me know if you have any more questions


Eliza
