Pros

What are the best things about studying at your university?

2016

"Location, student town, friendly community and 24/7 library."
"It is a student centred town so everything revolves around the university."
"The location. Not only is it in such a beautiful place but the whole town is a student town. It feels safe and it's easy to become situated comfortably."
"Very open and helpful lecturers. Fantastic local community with people who are prepared to help and support you with any problems."
"The location is ideal for me personally. It's not too far away from home, but because of its rural location you feel distanced enough for a sense of independence. One of the major aspects I love about the university is its cultural diversity because of the number of international students who attend here. The chance to socialise with so many students from different backgrounds is really rewarding and the university provides a platform for that through a number of societies and language exchange programmes. I think the facilities at the university are at a high standard and everything is easy to locate and use."
"The sea is close. The staff are all renowned in their field of research. The department is ranked as one of the best in the world."
"It has nice computer rooms allowing us to work wherever. That's a bonus I really enjoy because I can just roam around and sit to do work wherever's convenient."
"The best things about attending Aberystwyth University are the size of the town, the location, charity shops, and the people. Aber is a small town and this has its benefits, with good charity shops being one of them. As a student, not having much money is for some a common affair and charity shops are great for cheap clothes shopping. Also the location; Aberystwyth is so beautiful, the sea and sunsets never seem to fail in terms of beauty and there are plenty places to go on walks."
"Amazing location, small and friendly department, staff are always available and helpful, low cost of living."
"Sunset views. Staff are very passionate and helpful and friendly. I'm also very happy in regards to my course, in terms of geography the university is good and in terms of glaciology it is world class."
