Teaching methods blackboard is very useful
Course Content is best
Great location, got beaches, mountains and woodlands to explore. There are loads of societies, all are free. The lectures are really good mostly on replying and will help you if you are clearly trying.
Course content on the whole has been really interesting, in the last year I have been able to go on 7 in person field trips and all of them have been really enjoyable. Most of the sessions have been in person, but have the option of joining online. Only downside is they do not give you many career options post uni, it has either been work in a zoo, or jobs that you need to do a masters for predominantly.
Bangor is an amazing place for international students, I discovered that immediately after I came here from Czech Republic 4 years ago. The staff are absolutely amazing and getting to know them is an honour, every time I had an issue the lecturers would work with me to resolve it immediately, especially in the masters modules where there are less students. The student body is also amazing, I quickly found a second family here and had some of the best times of my life with them. The city is easy to navigate and there are many unique places to go with your friends. The campus is huge, and sometimes I found it hard to find where my classes were, but after I got used to this I started appreciating the range of facilities we have here.
I study Neuroimaging, its a small course which means that the lecturers can afford to give us individual feedback and assistance. We also have out own MRI scanner, which is obviously a huge plus. The career prospects of a course in neuroimaging are also pretty good, it will help me with a lot of research focused job applications. The worst aspects of my course are also the best ones, it is hellishly hard, and there is a lot of programming. I appreciate the lecturer having so much time for us, because I know the work will be worth it.
Bangor is a beautiful city with a lot of unique places. Unfortunately it is very small and there are not that many jobs to go around for all the students that live here. This means that a lot of people can find themselves without a job, living off their savings or family while studying. The graduate work opportunities are also limited, and most students find work elsewhere in the UK. The city is small and it is easy to get almost anywhere. Additionally, there is a train station here as well as many bus lines.
I live locally and this has made it so easy to transport covid to be honest has affect my studies but the online option has been a delight
Its been great
The area we live in is amazing! The students are so looked after, with prompt replies from staff and so many activities to do. we have FREEEE societies and volunteering opportunities and FREEE clubs!! SO MUCH TO PICK FROM. This year they also offered us a free empowerment program that included a fire walk and a fire activity (kayaking, ribride, gorge scrambling, karts, etc) they really do everythign they can for students. i love it here and would always recommend it and area of improvement would be to always include a halal option
all good! they are always here when needed
I think the location is not the best as it is on the hill and not accessible to everyone. it also does not say so on the uni's website. however, overall, it is good, cleanniness, bed comfort and space
Overall I have had a great time studying at Bangor University. Bangor is not the average city but does offer a great location with many nearby places to experience. The Criminology course has variety of different modules and the teaching has been excellent along with the student support services Bangor University offers. Away from study, for students staying in accommodation, activities are arranged by the campus life team which is additional to the numerous clubs and societies that are offered to all students.
The Criminology course while I have been a student at Bangor University due to coronavirus has been offered with a blended learning approach with lectures and seminars. Wherever possible, there has been in class lectures and seminars. Additional to this is independent study time. All staff are very supportive.
Everyone is very friendly and the staff have been amazing throughout my time here. They want to get to know you and help you as an individual achieve the best you can. The environment of the town is good, and the surrounding mountains and coast are spectacular.
The course runs very smooth and you are always aware of what assignments and topics are coming up. The topics are varied and from your second year you can fully personalise your studies. I took a lot of modules in using music for health and well being and its given me a new appreciation for music in a medical field.
The surrounding area is amazing for walking and there are places to go shopping close by but the town centre itself is a bit sparce.
It was in a great location for lectures. The common areas were kept clean and the bins emptied by the cleaners which was nice.
University is hard overall, but i love the clubs and societies. Its nice to be involved as much as you can. However its hard to find a balance. Bangor university has an excellent student union and support for students.
The course is good, there isnt much to say. Every course has challenges, you just have to over come them
well the older accomodations are like prison cells and they are always so cold
the school does provide a lot of opportunities.
Bangor has excellent student support and caring personal tutors who have helped me grow personally and academically. My course specifically could be improved by increasing access to patients and patients samples e.g., in a clinic or lab.
The best aspects of my course include the flexibility of the course in terms of where and when the lectures are. They are often provided online and in person, and the option to review recordings of the lectures at a later date is also an option. My course could be improved if we were able to see real specimens or patient samples. Another improvement would be if more support was provided to find graduate schemes to complete after this degree.
The rooms are spacious and have on-suite bathrooms. The kitchen is shared between 8 people. There is a good degree of security, with cctv and security guards nearby outside. All necessary contact details e.g., for support services and security were proved in all the rooms.
