Your Students Union

As a Students’ Union we promise to:

These promises are fulfilled by providing students with a range of benefits and opportunities to get involved including:

  • 130 student Sport Clubs and Societies - including a PG Students Association and academic societies or a chance to start your own group.
  • Supporting, training and working with over 300 Academic Reps to have a positive impact for students at course level
  • Free, impartial, friendly and confidential advice
  • A representative voice for all Aberystwyth University students

  • Spaces to study, meet and socialise

Whilst the University is our major funder AberSU is an independent charity working purely for the benefit of students with a focus on membership activities and student development.
