Law is a challenging subject which stretches me each and every day and that is exactly why I enjoy it! Thanks to both the brilliant staff and the expansive resources available to students, the challenge remains one which I’ve never felt was out of my grasp. Aberystwyth itself is a great town, ideal for a variety of students; it has something to offer for everyone and I know of no better place to make close friends. The town is very relaxed and welcoming and when it is sunny there is no place in the UK I’d rather be. Andrew James Hall

The combination of a brilliant course with a beautiful town is perfect. I have loved studying Law at Aberystwyth over the past 3 years; although it has been hard work and exhausting it has been both thrilling and challenging. All the lecturers, tutors and staff are fantastically friendly and helpful and care about the department and the way modules are taught. The Law library houses everything you need for your degree so you don’t need to go far. Law attracts so many different personalities and students from different backgrounds and spending 3 years with them is great. The modules for Law offer great choice. William Pryce
