Description of centre

Welcome to Aberystwyth University, and to the International English Centre.

We offer great teaching in a beautiful, safe and friendly location. Aberystwyth is a vibrant town between the mountains and the sea, with the beach just a short walk from campus, and the National Library of Wales and one of Wales’ largest Arts Centres just beside the International English Centre.

If you join us for an English course, you can be confident you’ve chosen an excellent language centre. We’re proud to be the “best language centre in Wales 2018 and 2019” (EL Gazette) and part of a university which won the Times & Sunday Times “Teaching University of the Year” in both 2018 and 2019.

We are even more proud that 97% of our students would recommend our courses to family or friends.

Why not join us? We offer courses for students who want to prepare for degrees at Aberystwyth University, plus summer courses and year-round courses for those of you who simply want to improve your English by living and learning in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK.
We welcome group and individual bookings, and are happy to consider requests for tailor-made courses.

During summer, all our courses include a full social programme, and in the academic year, you have access to student clubs and societies and all the excitement of a thriving university student life. Whether you join us for two weeks or a year, you’ll be a full member of the university, with access to our libraries, study and social spaces, sports centre etc.

Please email tesol@aber.ac.uk with any enquiries and we look forward to welcoming you to Aberystwyth soon.
