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.
