HE Guidance: Student Insight – Not Just Any University Location – Your Guide To Studying At A University Away From City Life With Laura Hill From Aberystwyth University

March 4 @ 17:15 - 18:00



In Aberystwyth’s Student Insight series, we are offering 4 interactive 45 minute weekly events focusing on aspects of student life at university. As going to university involves so much more than academic study alone, these webinars will cover a range of topics, giving advice on how they might affect your student experience, and what you might want to take into consideration when researching what universities will best suit you. As a student or parent/guardian, you will hear from current undergraduate students and will receive some handy advice and top tips.

In this session on Location we will be covering:

  • As a friendly cosmopolitan hub with University staff and students from over 100 countries, we’ll explain how familiar high street names jostle with independent shops, cafes and an award-winning Farmers’ Market.
  • Aberystwyth is surrounded by a beautiful environment. Nestled between the Cambrian Mountains and Cardigan Bay it provides a rugged landscape of rolling hills, valleys, sand and sea and we will highlight the pros of such an amazing location.
  • There is plenty to do both inside and outside of Aberystwyth. Inside Aberystwyth you can enjoy a night of live music, stand-up comedy, a fun night out with friends, or stroll up to the National Library of Wales. Outside of Aberystwyth there are great outdoor locations which provide great spots for wandering through woodland, trekking up hillsides or cycling down mountain bike trails.

In a relaxed and friendly forum, it is the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you have about Location at university.
