My overall experience so far has been great. I am very much enjoying my course and taking full advantage of the facility's that the university provides. The society's have been an amazing way to make friends and have allowed me to try new things which would never be available at my home town.
The class sizes are pretty small so it feel very personal and the way lectures are set up allows me to ask questions about any thing I don't under or am struggling with
They support the sports clubs, societies and volunteering opportunities well and are always there when they need help.
The university has great facility's for education such as it's many library's and also supports students in other way with the inclusion of the gym and other sport opportunity
Everything is pretty close to each other so the there's no issue in that regard
Are sports and societies are great at Bangor. They offer a wide variety of different clubs, sports and volunteering opportunities which means there should be something for everyone. The societies and sports clubs are well funded and managed with plenty of support from the student Union if they need it. Overall the societies I have joined have made my university experience very enjoyable.
Very good, especially if you like the outdoors. Not geared towards mature students however. Things like peer guides are not necessarily considered and there are no social groups for mature students.
There is lots on offer, but it is not relevant to my course.
I like how friendly our lecturers are. We are only a cohort of 31 so you get lots of contact with staff.
It is very good.
Mostly good, lots could do with updating. The gym is good but it's too expensive for students and lots can't afford it. It's not fair that only the halls students get it for free.
Yes, everything is very convenient as Bangor is such a small place.
There is something for everyone. I would like to see something specifically for mature students.
Mostly good. It's hard to get an appointment with the counsellors.
I have enjoyed the university so far! Some things I expected more of, while for some, I expected less. I love the course that I am studying, as it is interesting, but can be challenging, which is what I expected. I have made lots of friends and have built my confidence in many ways. I have developed as a person and am looking forward to achieving personal goals. However, I am disappointed that I didn't get a proper freshers week as I didn't know anybody and I was new to Wales.
My course is 50% theory and 50% placement, therefore, theoretical knowledge balances well, which we can apply to practical work during placements.
I like how the students are engaged, especially during a debate. I also like my placements - a different way to gain skills. I don't like lectures where the lecturer doesn't explain the topic well or doesn't involve the students.
I agree with the Students' Union, however, Wrexham students cannot always access their facilities.
Yes, my university/campus is a walking distance of 15 minutes from my accommodation.
I study in Bangor, Wrexham campus, therefore, I do not have access to the societies and sports from the main campus in Bangor. This I find quite unfair, as I and other Wrexham students feel left out.
They are very supportive
I only started in January but so far it's really good and is giving me skills for my career in the field- such as writing media releases, using archives, looking at sources. There are also loads of research seminars to attend that keep you up to date with current literature
Employability skills are good and are intertwined within the Masters course. I found this better done that in the BA Childhood Studies course I did at this Uni (graduated in 2018)
Most- Really interesting and informative lectures
The SU represents the student body effectively and are happy to help
Facilities are good and there is a specific study room with a full kitchen for Postgraduate students in the Sociology, History and Social Science department
The University is really well positioned and close to all halls and local amenities. You never really have to travel for more that 30 minutes to any halls within Bangor and 45minutes for Menai Bridge
There is a massive range of societies and clubs and they are very welcoming
Support is generally good but I, personally have never been contacted by my personal tutor
The university experience is decent but here there is not much nightlife or stuff to do during the day which is unfortunate and can get quite boring at times !!
i like the experience i dislike the examinations
my university experiences thus far have been amazing. I have learned and experienced so many new things in such a short period of time .My classes are great and I enjoy every one of them.
I absolute love it! I was so nervous starting but everyone was so welcoming and it was easy to make friends as everyone was in the same boat. I think it’s an ace uni
They have lots of information online and do lots of different work shops which I am told about over email
I like that it taught by different tutors from frills specific nursing
They listen to students and things can be taken seriously when there is an issuse
Ace they have everything you need
Yes it is close to my house just a shot walk, it’s close to the town center and is close to the hospital I do placement in
Good they have loads to offer
Eccellente I've had the best time of my life so far, meeting new people and making new friends, I absolutely love my course and the tutors are all very helpful.
Bangor has the best option on societies, clubs and sports
I genuinly could not have hoped for a better University experience. These past three years has gone by so quickly - due to having fun while studying. Everyone has been very helpful and made my subjects interesting.
It holds several employability fairs and seminars throughout the semesters, which is great if you want to learn new stuff!
What I like the most is the contact between the lecturer/seminar leader and the student. You really become close throughout the year which is much better than just being one in a hundred. You are also taught different ways of how to lead for example hold seminars and they really allow you to excel personally as well. However, I would prefer if you had some more contact hours.
The SU at Bangor has always been there for my sports team and is willing to help with whatever you need. It has a mix of People reps and the facilities are close to university which makes it a perfect social space.
The university facilities are great, however some parts (the older parts) may need some refurbishment.
Distance between accommodation and local amenities is perfect as you can walk wherever you want.
Bangor is the perfect place for finding all kinds of societies/sports that would suit everyone. It is the second family or group of friends, also a perfect way of letting off some steam, anxieties or just energy in general.
The support is amazing as you often receive feedback on assignments quite quickly and there are lots of personal counselling and opportunities available if needed.
I love it it’s been one of the best Experiences of my life.
The university is amazing in terms of location and amenities. Shops are so close and the lectures are a five minute walk away
