|Scholarship Name||International Accommodation Award|
We are delighted to provide international fee-paying students with our International Accommodation Award, giving students the option of their university accommodation with a £2,000 discount or entirely free of charge. Terms and conditions apply.
This housing scholarship is applicable for the duration of the taught element of your studies if you are studying a Bachelors degree, Masters degree or a Foundation course. In some cases PhD students may also be eligible.
We have plenty of availability, however, a room on campus is not guaranteed, and is allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Students must apply for accommodation by the stated deadlines to be eligible for a room.
The University has several different accommodation buildings. The housing scholarship is different depending on which building you choose. Places in Cwrt Mawr are free of charge for international students, whilst, all other on-campus options include a £2,000 discount.
All on-campus rooms are single occupancy, meaning you will need to find alternative private accommodation in town if you plan to live in Aberystwyth with family members or other dependants.
All on-campus rooms are inclusive of utility bills and Wi-Fi, with residents also benefitting from free of charge Platinum gym membership at the University’s Sports Centre.
The number of weeks in your accommodation occupation contract is important, so always make sure you check it covers the duration of your study.
Bachelor’s students (UG):
your accommodation will be available to you for 39 or 40 weeks. This means you will need to find alternative housing if you choose to stay in Aberystwyth over the summer months before term starts again in September. This could be in town in private accommodation, or on-campus if there is space available – the accommodation office will be able to help advise. There will be a cost for summer accommodation.
Master’s students (PG):
your accommodation will ordinarily be available to you for 50 weeks. If you wish to stay longer in Aberystwyth you will need to find, and pay for, alternative accommodation. This could be in town in private accommodation, or on-campus if there is space available.
PhD students (PG):
if you are eligible for the International Accommodation Award, the license pack will be for 50 weeks. This means there will be two weeks in September where you will need to find alternative accommodation before the next term starts.
