About Aberystwyth University

Aberystwyth University has a proud history dating back to 1872 – when it was established by the people of Wales as the first Welsh University. Since its early days the University has developed areas of great strength. We have exceptional commitment and results in both research and teaching and a firm friendship with the town and local community, on which we must build for the future. Those strengths, of course, come directly from the involvement and efforts of a whole range of exceptional people; with outstanding contributions from academic and professional support staff and students, working together to provide an excellent student experience and a fantastic place to work.

These are challenging times for Higher Education. In many ways, the rule book is being re-written, but there are important principles that are unchanged. The priorities for this University will remain the provision of excellent opportunities for learning and teaching, world leading student support, cutting edge research in a broad range of academic disciplines – and all in an environment which is second to none. My executive team and the wider community at Aberystwyth University will continue to focus relentlessly on the value we can add for our eminently employable graduates, our partner universities and businesses, our friends in the local community, the economy and the quality of life in Wales, the UK and the world.
