Students select from the full array of UWA classes, which are taught in a combination of lecture and small seminars that offer a collaborative approach to learning and demand a high level of student preparation and participation. Two students may participate in the exchange program in a typical year. Students are housed in the residence halls and may participate in the many clubs and societies on campus. In addition, UWA and Aberystwyth are host to excellent centers for the arts and music. UWA has a dynamic campus life that affords many opportunities for students to become involved in the host culture.
