A student survey has named Aberystwyth University as one of the best for teaching and learning in the UK.

The Times Higher Education's student experience survey placed Aberystwyth fourth in a league table behind Oxford, Cambridge and St Andrews universities.

It was also named one of the best in the UK for providing students with the best facilities.

The university said the results were "testament to the quality of teaching" and the dedication of its staff.

More than 11,000 full-time undergraduates in 104 universities were contacted as part of The Times survey.

They were asked to rate their university's quality of teaching, student support, social life and institutional facilities.

Aberystwyth University's pro vice-chancellor Professor Martin Jones said: "These results are testament to the quality of teaching here and the professionalism, dedication and commitment of our staff."
