Geography and Environmental Studies, Graduate
(5)·By Steven S·Geography· Oct 2018
The geography course at Aberystwyth was very well-run, with passionate, engaging and approachable lectures that were top in their field. The course was also well structured and the Year 2 field trip was enjoyable.
Nights out in Aberystwyth are always a big laugh, especially in Year 1. Yoko's is a decent club, and Pier Pressure on the pier is a laugh if its cold and wet! Aberystwyth also has more pubs than you can name, so pre-drinks is always good!
Student life in Aberystwyth is unique. Beach BBQs with my expedition society were a regular occurrence, and being near the cambrian mountains, and in driving distanxe of snowdonia was awesome for rock climbing, hiking and mountain-biking.
People assume that because it's in Wales that Aberystwyth is always wet and cold, but the town almost has its own micro-climate, making beach days and drinks on the sea-front very pleasant.
