Welcome from the Vice-Chancellor

‌Aberystwyth University has been providing an excellent standard of education since it first opened its doors to students almost 150 years ago. Our mission today is unchanged. As Vice-Chancellor, I am proud of our heritage and proud to lead an institution with an international reputation for providing high quality teaching and research, as well as an exceptional student experience.

The value of an Aberystwyth University degree has stood our graduates in good stead for generations and we have always been keen to ensure that the benefits of studying with us are not confined to those on campus alone. Over the years, therefore, we have formed successful partnerships with other education institutes both in the UK and overseas.

I’m delighted therefore that you have chosen to take an Aberystwyth University programme and I wish you well with your studies. You will become part of the Aberystwyth University family with access to the high quality of education we provide as well as many of the other excellent resources our students enjoy. You will also have a support team both on the main Aberystwyth campus and at the designated institution where you will be studying.   

Our vision for all our students, both at home and further afield, is to foster global citizens who are prepared for the demands and challenges of the 21st century. I hope you enjoy your programme of study and the exceptional student experience for which Aberystwyth University is known.
