    Come here if you want to reach your full potential

    Many universities ask for top grades, and unsurprisingly have a lot of students graduating with top grades. What Bangor does though, is take students with slightly lower grades, and turns them into students achieving top grades. The support available at Bangor is unbeatable. A lot of universities want you to prove what you can do for them, whereas Bangor University wants to show what it can do for you. If you go to Bangor, you will come out with a better result than you would get elsewhere. That gold award for teaching isn’t just for decoration. That’s its biggest selling point.

    Bangor is quieter than city universities, so if you’re looking for a wide selection of clubs to go to on nights out, you’ll lose out compared to friends at those unis. But pretty much the whole town of Bangor is built around the University, so you won’t be short of places to eat and things to do. Bangor is particularly well known for its sport too, and most students seem to do at least one. The location is perfect for this, making it simple to do anything from sailing to orienteering. You’ll also find it easier to budget too, as Bangor is a lot cheaper than most other places. It’s also one of the only universities I’ve heard of where there are more houses than students, so landlords are much easier to deal with and rent is cheap as it gets.

    So whilst I can’t fully recommend it to people looking for an exciting city type environment, I can fully recommend it to anyone looking to achieve their full potential at university. You won’t be bored, you will make friends and you won’t regret it.

    Bangor University provides an excellent nurturing environment for students

    With free clubs and societies, Bangor University really ups the student experience game as well as opens up a wide range of opportunities for everyone, making sure that no one is disadvantaged. I admire the fact that the University really cares about its students and it really shows, such as through schemes like free wellbeing sessions which are held regularly as well as a thriving campus life with an excellent pastoral support team. In this day and age when knowledge is accessible through the click of a button, Universities are no longer just about earning a degree and academics, it is about experiences and fostering responsible citizens of the future which is why mental health is given such importance in Bangor University.

    Course content

    Bangor is a friendly city and the Uni is at the centre of the town, close to all amenities. Great restaurants, teaching was good, department facilities excellent. I didn’t live in halls but in Portdinorwic. A very international uni.

    The student services, especially the student housing (pad) staff

    A lot of effort is clearly put in in many aspects of the university, such as the library and student services. This is especially true for the dyslexia centre there. There is also an excellent gym, with shops all very near by. Societies are generally good and easy to set up, although of course depend on the students themselves, so vary in quality, but many are excellent.
    Sadly it has been marred in recent years by finance difficulties leading to staff job insecurity. It has also become progressively more infested with feminism and delusional “social justice”, particularly the student union, with the lgbtqxyz society has an unreasonable amount of power and leverage.
    Feminist staff also feel able to discriminate more openly against anyone who does not bow to the ideology, or their ideology is aimed against (scapegoat group/s) I have personal direct overt experience of this. Fortunately, it was recorded and the head of the school took the complaint made was not dismissed and at least action was taken after.

    Overall not the best place but not the worst either.

    Good University

    Variety of modules within the degree giving students lots of knowledge and content of the course, with some overlap. A huge range of activities set up by the university. Several different opportunities. Amazing location. There’s just something about the place that makes it so great.

    So expensive for international students!

    I had a great time at Bangor, love the city love the school love the mountains! But it is soooo expensive just to pay tuition as an international student. I had to work two jobs and missed out on a lot of the action.

    I knew it would be Bangor from day one when I was picking universities. The support is amazing, and the fact that all sports clubs and societies are free means that you get to try out everything with no fear! Everyone is so kind and welcoming here, and it definitely feels like a massive family.

    There’s nowhere quite so wonderful

    I will never never regret coming to Bangor. My theee years have been filled with support from staff who are so passionate about their subjects to dedicated SU workers. Bangor University is a lovely environment to work in, I can’t fit how much this institution means to me into a short paragraph but I will say this: you will never regret coming to Bangor, no matter the ups and downs you will encounter, the support that is on offer and the kindness in our community is incredible. So much so I’m doing a masters here too!
