Essentials

Before you get to Aber there are a few things that we’d recommend getting to make sure that you can jump right in to student life hassle free…

NUS Extra discount card

It’s well known that as a student you’re going to have to get used to sticking to a bit of a tight budget. We’d definitely suggest that you spend £12 on an NUS Extra card right at the start of the year so you can start saving from your very first day as a student, and trust us, you’ll save that initial £12 in no time at all!

Student Bus Card

If you’re going to be based in town (or just don’t like hills) take a look at our bus card offer here. We’ve teamed up with locally based bus company Mid Wales Travel to bring you the best deal when it comes to travelling in and around Aberystwyth.

Join a club and/or society

Already planning to join certain clubs and societies? You can do so online before you even get here to ensure that you’re receiving any emails and information from them as soon as possible – there’s no rush though, as you can choose to join any club or societies throughout the year, we really don’t mind.
