Welcome to Aberystwyth University! Whether you are thinking of becoming a student here; seeking to develop business links with my colleagues; revisiting the place where you studied or worked; or simply interested in finding out more about our plans and achievements (and the wonderful town, countryside and coast which surround us), I’m delighted that you want to spend some time with us.

Aberystwyth University has a proud history dating back to 1872 – but for me, these are still early days as Vice-Chancellor here, having joined on August 1. However, I’ve formed a clear picture of the great strengths of the University. We have exceptional commitment and results in both research and teaching and a firm friendship with the town and local community, on which we must build for the future. Those strengths, of course, come directly from the involvement and efforts of a whole range of exceptional people; and I was fortunate enough to be at the Open Days in 2011, to see the outstanding engagement from academic and professional support staff and students, working together to provide excellent, energising days. We look forward to welcoming many of our Open Day visitors to study with us in September 2012!

These are challenging times for Higher Education. In many ways, the rule book is being re-written, but there are important principles that are unchanged. The priorities for this University will remain the provision of excellent opportunities for learning and teaching, world leading student support, cutting edge research in a broad range of academic disciplines – and all in an environment which is second to none. My senior team and the wider community at Aberystwyth University will continue to focus relentlessly on the value we can add for our eminently employable graduates, our partner universities and businesses, our friends in the local community, the economy and the quality of life in Wales, the UK and the world.

It is a great pleasure and a privilege to have been invited to lead Aberystwyth University through this next and vitally important phase in its history. If you want to know more, my colleagues and I (including some of the key people listed below, who might be first points of contact for you) will be happy to help – please explore the website, give us a call, or come and see us. I invite you to consider how you can be part of our future, and to find out how we can help expand your horizons.
