Marketing BSc (Hons)

After studying in Bangor for 5 years after changing degree, it now feels like a second home to me. Now in my final year leaving will be difficult as I have fallen in love with the University and City. Some students argue that there is little to do in the area, in terms of activities such as shopping or cinema, but I would argue that there are so many stunning places to visit if you enjoy hiking and sightseeing. The student support for me personally has been great. They have been very patient and understanding with my struggles with mental health and it has allowed me to thrive both academically and as a person. I could not recommend Bangor more highly, it is an escape from a busy city life and a great place to relax and find peace.

Bangor is a great uni, with the campus all within walking distance. Lovely coastal views and views of Snowdonia. All the teaching staff i have had are lovely and very supportive both academically and personally with any issues you may have. Bangor also has many different places to study if studying at home isn’t a productive space for you - there’s multiple libraries, and communal spaces. There are so many free clubs, sports and societies you can join with great social life. Plenty of housing and accommodation types to choose from, making living easy. I wouldn’t say there’s anything to improve on necessarily. Some staff aren’t great at getting back to emails but other than that, all good things to say from me.

The location is stunning and provides plenty for students to do outside of uni. It allows us to get more In Touch with nature. The teachers are welcoming and friendly and offer as much support as they can. There's plenty of society's to keep you fit and on your feet. The accommodations are lovely and away from local crowds which gives a lovely student village feeling. Overall, a fantastic university

A lovely welcoming environment, in an amazing landscape, with great lecturers, facilities and world leading research. Worst aspects of my uni experience are probably mostly due to the pandemic and lockdowns, so no fault on the University, and I think they communicated very well during this period.

Linguistics and Psychology BA (Hons)

University rating (4)

The university is situated in such a beautiful location, with mountains, waterfalls, ocean and beaches etc all on your doorstep! Especially now with covid and a movement to more online learning, its vital to be situated somewhere stunning so you can enjoy both your study time and free time in sun a beautiful place. It would be nice to actually have access to the inner courtyard of main arts building. This would make the universe site perfect in my books. The worst experience has been that a select few lecturers have not adapted well to online teacher so this needed to be improves, but most thrived in the face of the new challenges. More group outings etc as a class would build the sense of rapport within students as being a joint honours, i can often feel left out. More practical things would be fun.
