Aberystwyth provides a warm welcome to international students from over 90 countries.If you are considering entering Aberystwyth from another country then you will probably have special questions to ask which are different to those asked by UK students. This section is intended to provide some answers to those questions but please feel free to contact us if you would like to obtain more information.

A special welcome day is organised for international students at the start of your first term. Here you will meet staff, students and other new international students.
