Aberystwyth is the Welsh university of the year and has been awarded the prestigious ‘University of the Year for Teaching Quality’ accolade for two consecutive years (Times & Sunday Times Good University Guide, 2018 & 2019). This makes the university the first Welsh institution to be ranked number one for the award and also has helped them to climb into the top 50 in the official UK league table.
The editor of the Times & Sunday Times Good University Guide, Alastair McCall, said, “Twice a winner of our award for University of the Year for Teaching Quality, Aberystwyth this year scoops the national prize for Wales. This will come as no surprise to its students, who have rated it the best in Wales for teaching quality and the wider student experience for the past four years. It was the standout candidate to be the Welsh University of the Year for 2020.”
