Aber is so amazing! The academic staff are brilliant, really helpful and encouraging to make you think outside the box, the uni is right next to a lovely coastline, so everyone goes down to the beach when the sun’s out to relax – a highlight of the year. The nightlife is also great, loads of bars in town and everyone’s up for it – you end up not needing the union (besides the legendary Bierkeller) after first year, there’s so much on in town.

    So far, very enjoyable. The course is great and most people are really friendly. There are amazing societies such as medieval reenactment, and it's a lovely area on the coast. The hills aren't fun, but other than that, there are few flaws.
