Is HE for me?

Higher Education (HE) means any level of study beyond A Levels or Level 3 vocational qualifications. This can include:

  • Foundation degrees
  • Full degrees (BA, BSc BEng)
  • Higher apprenticeships (known as degree apprenticeships in England)
  • Professional qualifications at Level 4+ including leadership and managements and technical qualifications in work related areas like Accountancy, Human Resources, Health and Safety etc.

Who can do it?

We award places based as much on life skills and experience as we do on subject-related qualifications. As a result, we have a diverse student community made up of college leavers as well as mature students looking to progress or change their career. Our exact entry requirements are listed in the individual course outlines.

What are the costs?

  • Foundation degrees and degrees have fees which can be funded by student loans
  • Higher apprenticeships are usually fully funded by the Welsh Government
  • Professional courses may be funded by your employer, by you or by European projects

Aberystwyth University:

There’s no doubt in my mind that Aber offers an excellent education: addressing key issues with first-rate teaching, which in turn is backed up by some of the best research in the UK. We’re firmly rooted in our local community, but addressing today’s key issues on an international scale.

Aber provides a transformative education, and encourages students to become rounded individuals through making the most of their time with us. However, the Aber experience is much more than just studying. Together, our students and staff provide a real community in which students can savour the myriad of opportunities in sport and society.

To top it all, the University is in idyllic countryside on the Welsh coast, and is recognised as one of the safest universities in Britain. Also, Aberystwyth was recently announced as the best UK town by the Academy of Urbanism, recognising the environmental beauty and the social strengths of our community.
