Aberystwyth University
8.6 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 10 ratings in 2017)
In a few words
"Aberystwyth itself is a great town, especially if you get involved in the community through pubs, music, theatre, the market, church etc. The campus is compact and very green so it's a lovely place to study, especially in the sunshine. Facilities could be better, in particular the sports centre and some of the accommodation, but teaching spaces have recently been refurbished and are now really nice to learn in."
