Accommodation and meals
Summer Institute participants will be housed in single rooms in dedicated Fulbright houses in Pentre Jane Morgan, Aber’s “student village”. These houses have fully equipped kitchens where students will be able to prepare their own food and brown bag lunches (lots of day trips!). Students will also have access to all the cafes available on campus and free gym membership for the duration of their stay.

Academics and credits
The Aberystwyth Fulbright Summer Institute will be credit bearing. Students will receive credit to transfer to their home institution if they successfully complete the course. The academic component will entail the completion of a 10 UK credit module (3 US credits) including a journal, presentation, and a written assignment.
