Bangor university is in a great location with plenty to do around the area. I have lived my experience hear and have made plenty of new friends from around the country.
Provide Bangor Employability award which you can earn points for. They put on workshops for this within and outside of your course.
The first few years are great, lots of contact hours and practical time. 4th year is a bit boring as we are never in u over diary due to project work, could increase compulsory contact hours.
Yes it’s 10/10 amazing, everything on your doorstep.
It has been great! I think I've been able to experience multiple sides of the University, both in academic and organisational experience. You really just have to throw yourself out there, and with practice will be able to manage time more wisely to work effectively and dive into things that interest you.
There are a lot of workshops and consultation available
I really like the variety of areas available. I wish there were more lab-based courses/assignments available, considering we have a variety of neuroimaging facilities.
Mental health help is immensely important in this university. A lot of care is provided so that you always have a contact person in any kind of situation
Really good, we just had a new MRI scanner installed.
Everything is within walking distance
We have 100s of societies and sports, with option available for any kind of hobby or interest
It's amazing and if I had the chance to continue studying here, I definitely would choose Bangor University. With its amazing support from staff and fellow students, Bangor is the place to be if you want a tight-knit student community.
They are very keen on making sure we're employable and I'm very grateful to have had the chance to take part in an internship and also take part in various workshops that help build your CV and how to do interviews (which was one of the reasons I managed to get the internship).
The lecturers are always open to us asking questions through email and even during class. I benefit a lot from going to drop ins and the lecturers would do their best to help you improve your work.
We have great sports facilities and the student union does a great job of making sure we have a good time at the university.
The buildings may look old but I enjoy studying them. Most of the buildings I use are nice and warm with good wifi connection.
Accommodation is close by to classes, only 10 minutes walk maximum. If you discount the fact we have to climb a lot of hills, everything is close and easy to get to.
Amazing. Too many to choose from, and all of them are free.
My personal tutor is very helpful when I had problems in figuring out what I wanted to do for masters and guiding me through the various options. She also helped me through times when I wasn't at my best, which I am very grateful for. While I went to counselling with the university and wasn't very happy about the outcome, it was still a reasonable service for students to use.
My experience in Bangor has been amazing. I've loved every aspect of this university. From the beautiful landscapes that combine mountains and sea to the beauty of the Welsh culture and language. I've been very encouraged to learn and apply everything.
It does. They have many workshops, conferences, internships and job opportunities in all areas. I've got to work with them and they helped me to set up a freelancer business.
I love how the teachers are passionate about their fields and encourage students to learn more.
They are great. Really accomplish to communicate, offer interesting events and opportunities and overall listen to what the students would like.
Amazing! A contrast between modern and castle-type architecture.
It is by choice. I live in the town beside but it was because I wanted to explore living in a different place.
It's amazing how much variety there is. You can come hear and find your passion, join different societies and be part of so many groups.
Socially good and accommodation cheaper than other universities for what it’s worth maybe even the best societies really good. Representatives are great at their job too. However how courses are taught and the modules available for students I think is minimal. The course is more favourable to business law for employability but I’m not interested and instead maybe have modules students who do not enjoy business law to more human based or environmental based modules which they can enjoy. Or even give the option for students to expand their horizons and open modules to other courses I emailed the law school administrator once asking for that as I had no interest for procurement but she answered with”of course not!” .
Notifying us on job opportunities near by and to other career fairs in larger cities. Opportunities with in the university are often advertised. Though I wish the law school had more opportunities understandably it’s due to the location of the university but I heard many other law students from other areas have shadowed judges and done other things supplementary to the degree provided by the university. So it doesn’t really prepare me against other law students around the Uk.
I like that most lecturers are prepared to ask every question and have prepared a reading list for each topic of the module I hate how they don’t have as many tutorials to feel more individuality type learning environment where you won’t feel as much pressure and learn topics in extensive detail. Moreover I don’t feel challenged in my lectures or modules making a lot of stuck to the same grades i never ask questions in class because most lectures don’t provide us anything other than the basics for the questions in the exam and that disappoints me. I came to university to learn but I don’t feel like I am learning anything or feel challenged. I know other university that do law have that spark to them and it’s the Russell group I understand the university not being Russell group so I should know what type of education I get but I feel like my brain hasn’t been actively thinking at all in the last 3 years I felt more challenged in GCSE at this point. And when we are challenged it’s more with a topic that will appear on our assignments but even then they only answer questions relevant to the assignment title. I pay a lot for university £9000 and it doesn’t make sense that lectures just scrape the basics out for every topic I wish I had the ability to really challenge my understanding of every topic and not rushed lectures with professors reading off the slides. All in all I want to think.
It accommodates all necessities and needs however funding has been cut this year so many facilitates this year aren’t of the best quality. The representation is very good students do get their voice heard and feel actions are taken to improve the university through out the year
Depends it’s convenient that everything is 15 minutes away most residencies are 15 mins away from the uni and a lot of stores. However for cheaper accommodation students could live 20 to 30 minutes
It’s free and the university has a range of different societies even societies that involve outdoor sports like rock climbing and canoeing. It’s all free so a lot of students take advantage of that , easy to make friends outside of the course.
I mean she’s there
In Bangor University I made amazing friends which helped be the best of myself through volunteering as a peer guide, intl student ambassador hence I found a home away from home. Thank you Bangor
Employability workshops, workshops on c.v , drop in sessions on cv notes or employability, job adverts on schools websites, employability awards, volunteering opportunities to enhance transferable skills
Least - nothing Most - every lecture has a panopto recording , the way the lectures explain every lecture the lecture slides are pretty much self explanatory and every lecturer welcomes contribution
Yes it is
Amazing tailored to suit the students
Overall, I really love Bangor Uni. There's just so much to enjoy here and never a moment of dullness. The people here are nice and polite as well. And it's always easy to get help for whatever reason if u needed it.
There's loads of help on career advice and counselling for those who needed it.
I really like the discussions in class although the classes are a bit long.
Our student union did a great job representing us and providing us with all the necessities that we need, especially on long class days.
The facilities are OK, could do with some water fountains around campus
Everything is within walking distance from shops to library and public transport stops.
There's a huge selection of clubs and sports to choose from! And it's all free to join so I got to try out a lot of the societies and had a great time.
Poor. The students are great and so are the pubs but the uni is a disaster. No compensation for lectures missed from strikes, no money and funding for mandatory things suck as getting a poster printed or binding work. There's no cafe and the. Quality of support is non existent
There is the BEA award but it doesn't really make any difference
The course is horrible. The school and department are a waste of time and money
Aweful. They have done nothing for the students that matters.
Poor, never open and the staff are no help
Everything is close together, the buildings for uni are close too. Nothings further than 10 mins walking
Loads of free sports societies, they generally run throughout the week too. Brilliant laugh
No support. I don't think a single student thinks they are getting what they are paying for
Very good and its allowed me to experience so much and to meet some amazing people. I would thoroughly recommend this Uni to any student and to take every opportunity whilst you can.
Multiple events for students, for example; Work experience, internships, job fairs etc.
Most - The variety of being in lectures and out on placement to get hands on experience. Because, as much as you can learn a condition or situation in a book, there's nothing like actually experiencing a situation and being able to learn first hand.
It's very effective and considers multiple aspects of concerns and aims to improve them in an effective manner.
Very good and everything works well for the students and staff.
Yes, it's a pretty close knit-community, with all necessities within walking distance. It works best if you live within the University Accommodation, but I live away and drive in to Uni. Although despite this, the Uni is still in a good location for students.
There is a huge varieties. But they are more aimed towards to the September cohorts, which can be difficult with my course (that the year starts in April).
My Personal Tutor and mentors have been amazing, in offering support. On the terms of counselling, as I am an April cohort student, its difficult to arrange time to talk to someone. Because all of the slots and resilience training is aimed to fit around the September cohorts's course, which doesn't usually fit around the April's time allocated within University.
Really positive, the university has a great community and societies which are fun to embrace. Lots of events and socials every Wednesday. The course itself is engaging and interesting.
Yeah, it has employability awards and information along with a team of people.
The university as a whole is pretty disorganised. But the tutors make the most of it all, and are incredibly supportive and the work is always online so it's easy to go back on
The SU listens well, and is very active. The SU is good with working with societies and providing information :)
Overpriced laundry - they use a third party called Circuit laundry who are horrendous. Everything else is all good
It's pretty central to everything
Lots to choose from, lots to do. Is good.
Amazing. The university are really supportive of personal needs and academic needs, additional walk in tutors for core skills such as maths, English etc.
