Barn ein Myfyrwyr
Aberystwyth is the perfect place to study tourism, as it is a popular tourism destination. I especially like the size of the course: in our year we are a group of around 25 students which enables us to go on many field trips and study tours. The lecturers are experienced and very helpful and over the past three years we've got to know them very well. The course structure is flexible so you can concentrate on areas that you enjoy!
