" Pleasant surroundings, qualified and friendly staff, good facilities, but nightlife if quite poor as for city with 13 thousands of students. About 30 pubs are excellent but only two shitty nightclubs. I did not attend any society or uni gym, unfortunately, so I cannot tell anything about them. "

" Aber is such a friendly uni, I have loved my three years here so much. There is a real sense of community, and a whole range of societies to join, even if you are a non-drinker (like me). The Fferm Penglais accommodation is also some of the best student accommodation I’ve seen! "

" Its a very good university, the standard of teaching is high and there are excellent facilities on campus, such as the library and student union. And the social scene is very good and cheap also. Would highly recommend people to go. "

" It is a pretty decent University, the facilities are pretty good, there is a mix of modern updated facilities and some older ones that could do with a touch up. Theres a wide range of lecture halls, computer rooms and laboratories. The IBERS (Institute of Biology, Environmental and Rural Sciences) is one of the best in the UK and it does show, the teaching is great (theres always some bad lectureres you have to expect) and the facilities are good too. However, for someone like me who did a Vocational diploma in College quite a few years prior to attending, I was massvly behind the teaching level. In first year they expect you to have done Biology A-Levels and they wont teach you any of the basics for it if you havent. So you have to prepare your own seperate study along side doing your degree just to catch up. This sent me back massivly. I am also Dyslexic however, growing up, I never got an offical diagnosis so they university, even though they did their own test on me and confirmed it, refused to give me any help with extra time and facilities to help me. The only thing they offer is for you to spend £400 getting an offical document to say you are. This then meant non of my lecuteres were aware of my dyslexia, as all assignments are marked anon, so my grades really showed it. The cost of living in Aber is very minimul, its cheap here. However, you have to understand that it is in THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. unless you have a car and are willing to drive for a few hours to the nearest city, you will have nothing to do besides walk along the prom and sit in a pub. Joining societies is great as there are so many but again, what they can do is limited. theres no activity cetnres, one cinema with one screen and its very old, all there is, is pubs and cafes. The selction of shops is also tiny, New Look or Matalan being the only places to buy clothes. Being an student in Aber, your life will be soley going out drinking as that is all there is to do. "

" Good experience, great staff and societies. Aberystwyth University has provided a great experience for me over the past three years. I always felt supported through my studies and the weeks were generally well organised and filled with fun and engaging arrangements. The campus is well put together and has all the necessary facilities for the successful completion of a degree. I feel that the courses could have explored a little bit of a wider area of research. However, the teaching was exceptional which is reflected in the rewards that the university has obtained over the years. "
