Aberystwyth University

Student review
By sophieacain

I love this university, I definitely made the right choice in coming here. I cannot recommend Aber enough, but at the end of the day, choosing what university you want to go to is entirely subjective. This is a beautiful town with some of the most lovely people I've ever met. The university is improving, and the facilities available here are amazing.
