Aberystwyth University

Aberystwyth University is an exceptional place to learn and live. We are a Top 4 UK University and 1st in Wales for Student Satisfaction (NSS, 2016). In addition, for the second successive year, Aberystwyth University was one of the highest climbers in the 2016 The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide and ranked Top for Teaching Excellence and the Best for Student Experience in Wales. Our graduates are highly employable - the latest statistics show that 92% of full-time first degree students were either in work or further study within 6 months after graduating (DLHE, 2015). Within an intimate community you will find a range of social, cultural and learning facilities which are the envy of many cities.

Student Union

Our Students' Union aims to make sure you have the best experience possible at University. The Union is led by Student Officers, and offers a sociable and relaxing space to study, unwind, socialise or actively participate in a wide range of activities. There are over 100 sports clubs and societies, including a host of volunteering initiatives available. The Union also runs the Student Advice Centre, which provides independent support on academic, welfare and financial issues, for students who need it. Through the Union students have a platform to have their voices heard on aspects of their course and university matters.

  • Contextual Data

  • For 2016 entry contextual data provided by UCAS will routinely be taken into account, as part of the admissions process, to decide whether applicants should receive a preferential offer. Contextual data may also be used during the confirmation process, when deciding whether a place can still be offered to those who narrowly miss their required results.
  • Interview / Audition policy

  • Majority of offers made on content of UCAS form with no interview. Mature applicants with no recent learning experience may be interviewed.
  • Parental Education

  • In accordance with our Equal Opportunities and Diversity Policy applicants are considered on their merits irrespective of family background and other comparable grounds. However, we are mindful that the lack of a family tradition of proceding to HE can be a barrier to widening participation. This factor, together with others, will be taken into account in considering applicants on the margins who may not have met the terms of the offer squarely but nonetheless have the potential to succeed.
  • Progress File

  • Used as additional evidence in marginal cases to decide whether to offer or confirm a place.
  • Unit Grades

  • Aberystwyth will not be using unit grade information at the application stage. Unit grade information will be used as part of the overall review of performance in cases where candidates do not meet the terms of their offers at Confirmation. Unit grade information will also be taken into consideration during Clearing.
  • Scholarships and Bursaries

  • We have a wide and valuable range of scholarships and bursaries available to students studying courses at Aberystwyth. Please see our website for full details of what we can offer.
