Barn ein Myfyrwyr

Studying History at Aberystwyth has been brilliant. The ability to pick modules and cater to your tastes has allowed me to pursue exactly what I want. If I want to study Russia I can. Alongside this the great teaching staff have a wealth of experience and knowledge and provide excellent teaching. I can approach them very easily and they are willing to give me the time and support I need. I can ask for help with essays and advice on what to read and research. Reading is key as a historian and the Library is a great resource for getting books. It has nearly all the books you need and should the book be out you can go to the National Library of Wales. In my 2 years of studying history I have not regretted my choice once, and going into my third year I simply cannot wait! Connor Lambert

What I love about studying History at Aberystwyth is everything! It is such a great degree scheme, with a wide range of modules to choose from in each year of study. The tutors are fantastic and always helpful and knowledgeable. Everyone within the department is friendly - staff and students alike - which creates a lovely working atmosphere. We have a fantastic resource just down the road, the National Library of Wales, which not only contains every book published in the UK after 1911, but is also a beautiful building to study in and commands the best view over the whole of Aberystwyth town. Studying History at Aberystwyth is the best decision I have ever made! Rachel Twomey
