Aberystwyth University
8.6 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 10 ratings in 2017)
In a few words
"The campus is on a hill. Can't be helped but I find it horrible. The facilities for teaching on Penglais campus have become very good since the recent refurbishment. The sporting facilities available are not great. Most of the accommodation provided by the university is really overpriced as well so I would always recommend trying to get accommodation in town rather than up the hill."
