Why Study at Aberystwyth?

Aberystwyth University has been names University of the Year for Teaching Quality for the second year running. It’s the first time a university has been given the prestigious award for a second consecutive year by The Times / Sunday times Good University Guide. The Guide said:

“Aberystwyth has achieved something no other UK university has done in winning our University of the Year for Teaching Quality award for two years in a row by exceeding already excellent previous results in the annual National Student Survey. No university in the UK now has students happier with the quality of their teaching, the product of a concerted effort to put student needs first and last.”

In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, 95% of the research activity submitted by Aberystwyth University was of an internationally recognised standard or higher, with world leading research (4*) identified in all 17 of the Units of Assessment submitted.
