Recognised as Welsh University of the year in The Times/Sunday Times Good University of the Year Guide, University of the Year for Teaching Quality, 2018/2019 and Top University of the Year (2019) for Student Satisfaction (NSS), Aberystwyth University has been educating students since 1872.
It has a widely recognised reputation for teaching excellence and an exceptional student experience.
8,000 students study across three academic faculties and 17 departments on the west coast of Wales.
Located on the Penglais Campus, the University wished to upgrade the C22 lecture theatre in the Hugh Owen Building. Hugh Owen is one of the main buildings for University staff and students, with numerous lecture rooms, offices and is where the main University Library is located.
Proposing a number of product and layout options, Ferco recommended the versatile FT8 seat with an integrated Wrimatic tablet.
The award-winning A3 tablet provides a generous writing surface for students, which is large and robust enough to hold a personal computer. Load tested to 240kg, Ferco's writing tablet is the strongest on the market, recording virtually no maintenance issues in its twenty year history.
The FT8 seat is a slimmer backed version of the FT10 lecture theatre seat and offers an exceptionally comfortable seating position for students.
This fully accessible lecture theatre also features several inclusive DDA Spaces with the Wrimatic tablet on a gas-lift adjustable post.
The seats were upholstered in two shades of Camira X2 fabric and the room has been finished with photographic images or Aberystwyth and the surrounding countryside.
