Expressing her experience of returning home to Aberystwyth to study, Becca Fflur Williams (MSc Behaviour Change) said:
“My hiraeth for Aberystwyth's sea wind drew me back to my hometown for my postgraduate studies after I had moved away to a city for my undergraduate degree. The biggest difference I’ve witnessed is the benefits of being part of a campus university; the feeling of a student community is accelerated.”
