The Aberystwyth University Old Students’ Association was founded in 1892 and, over a century later, it has more than 9000 members spread all over the world, united in their affection for this historic and much loved University by the sea.

There is a range of events held throughout the year; receptions at the National Eisteddfod and the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show (held jointly with the University), lectures in Welsh and English, a vibrant Travel Club and plenty of local branch events.

The Annual used to be the official yearly magazine of the OSA, published in hard copy and sent out to every member. However, in order to be able to spread news and updates on a more regular and more prompt basis, we decided to move with the times and create a digital version, the result of which you see here. As this is still a fairly new undertaking of ours, we would welcome your feedback.

If you have any news that you would like to see in the Annual – independent of Branch- or OSA news – please contact us via the contact form in ‘Information & Contact’ and we will be happy to publish them for you under ‘General News’. Please make sure that all parties concerned are OK with the publication.

Membership is open to all former students and staff of Aberystwyth University (formerly the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth and University of Wales, Aberystwyth).
