Is Aberystwyth University good for theoretical physics? It has comparatively lower fees for international students.

Can't find anything online. I find it really interesting that there's just a random street called Aberystwyth Place in America.
As part of his tour of various communities in Mid & West Wales, ViktorHR organised a relaxed round-table on the topic of Welsh education, particularly the success of Y Coleg and it's impact on welsh-medium education.
"It should be no reason for embarrassment that the University of Aberystwyth offers the best opportunity to study various subjects completely or mostly in welsh, that's nothing to be humble about. What Aberystwyth has done with the support of y Coleg has been groundbreaking for higher education in Wales. The quality of education is what distinguishes successful nations from those doomed from the start. And Wales is in a middle spot which offers quality education but barely any continuum of education in the native tongue of the country. Until 2011 welsh-medium tertiary education was almost completely limited to the study of the welsh language and some humanist studies in Bangor and Aberystwyth. One exception I can name is one of my professors in Cardiff who let us take tests in Welsh if we wanted. The subject was moral and political philosophy, and while I did struggle a lot with it, my determination to pursue education in Wales was greater than my fear of failing.
In only 10 years, Y Coleg has gone from offering courses in welsh literature to educating university professors on how they can improve their classes for welsh speakers. Today we have courses which are completely in the medium of welsh ranging from social sciences, to nursing and biomedicine. A big step was the Aberystwyth Law School which now offers a full time program in welsh - something that I am sure will become quite appealing considering the creation of a welsh legal jurisdiction. While many successful years are behind us, there's still a lot of work and attention Coleg requires. The Welsh Government should now prioritise opening a medical school in welsh, as well as courses in allied health professions in Welsh. While we do desperately need doctors and nurses who can offer their services in welsh, we also need more physiotherapists and SLPs who can offer the right kind of support to patients who speak exclusively Welsh or choose to speak only Welsh.
*In this opening statement of the round table I want to show you my commitment to expanding welsh-medium tertiary education and something I plan to lobby for with the next Welsh Government. The expansion of welsh-medium university education needs to be done completely through Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol to ensure everyon... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi! So I’m submitting my application tomorrow for Aberystwyth University and wanted to ask to those who went, who soon after you submitted your application did you get a response on acceptance? I know the acceptance rate is high, and I’m very much so academically talented and am not at all worried about my qualifications, more so just wondering how long it took. Thanks in advance!
Hey I just moved into the uni and I’m trying to connect my PS4 to the internet and I need a proxy server? Anyone know how I can set it up?
I'm a college student from the US and I'm looking at studying abroad in the Spring semester of 2022. I was hoping to get some insight on the university and town. Overall what the town is like and what the experience at the university is? I know that is broad question and I appreciate any comments!
