For six years running, Aberystwyth has won 'The best university in the country  for student satisfaction,' as awarded by The Times Good University Guide. The National Student Survey backs this up with the award for satisfaction being Aberystwyth’s for the past seven years. With around 7,500 students living in this beautiful town on the coast, it is hardly surprising. Even the shopping is reasonable when compared to city locations throughout the UK. To be honest there is not much more to add. Will the ratings on the left back up the survey monkeys?
