Sick uni, great town. Lecturers are great too. Halls very expensive. Easy to get to the beach from anywhere. Lots of pubs and places to eat. Not a lot to do aside from drink though.

The best uni you could ask for. Don't let the lack of nightclubs put you off, as you get 50+ pubs, daily exercise on an intense level (everythig you need is up & down hills), and best of all... The beautiful beach! The only disadvantage is the lack of wheelchair accessibility on campus due to the nature of the terrain. Top uni though, couldn't recommend more!

BA (Hons) English Literature and Creative Writing
3.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
3.0 / 1 review

We do not have many contact hours. I think for the money that we are paying the university, we do not get enough back. The lectures are generally ok, but some are completely unhelpful and off topic. The department itself is very disorganised as sometimes our feedback is late and any points made to improve are unclear.

BA (Hons) Fine Art

I studied at Aberystwyth to do a fine art course. As much as I loved the university I felt the teaching quality lacked. The art history side of things was briliant, and certain lecturers in particular were amazing and incredibly helpful. Where the main flaw and draw back was is the tutoring and the pratical lessons, sometimes you felt left behind and you jsut did not receive enough personal attention to really grow. Feedback given was also very mixed, one minute they would be raving and th next they would ahte your work.

The lecturer was rather knowledgeable on his subject, although there were some mistakes in regards to certain elements, and a differing opinion could lead to a lower mark. I loved studying this module although the lecturers book was the only textbook is d in seminars and people were penalised in assessments for not citing it.
