Fees £3,145 a year for all full-time undergraduate courses in 2008-9. Welsh students will qualify for a fee subsidy paid directly to the institution and will effectively be liable for a fee of approximately £1,225.
Bursaries Bursaries are means-tested, currently ranging from £1,000 for students on a maximum grant to £200 for students who receive the minimum grant. There are also subject-specific excellence bursaries available of £2,000 over three years, dependent on Ucas points. A £500 discount off first-year hall fees for all UK/EU students who hold Aberystwyth as their firm choice through Ucas by June 30. Music bursaries, entrance scholarships and merit awards are also available.
Accommodation Guaranteed for first-years. Accommodation prices start at £42 a week, with a wide range to choose from. Catered single rooms are £92.50 a week.
Facilities The university library is very well equipped but should it fall short you can always pay a visit to the National Library of Wales, which is based in Aberystwyth. It's a copyright library, meaning it's entitled to a copy of every book published in Britain. That's your reading list covered, then.
Transport Although it's out on the west coast, trains will whisk you to Birmingham and beyond. Road links will take you to north or south-west Wales with ease.
