The university is very good to use in general but they should be more helpful to find accommodation. The success in the field I read is very good and my teachers are perfect
the possibility to practice theoretically and follow from panopto
All is good
The uni is very supportive and there are many opportunities available if you look for it. The lectures are always happy to help when you ask. There are many societies to choose from.
Very good, accommodation is good price and good location, course is interesting, plenty of sports teams to try, lots of activities run by student organisations
Workshops for things like cv writing, ofer additional courses like language learning to improve skills
Very good, everything in walking distance
Very good, lots of variety
Positive. met some great people and the majority of the lecturers perform to a high standard. My only dissapointment come from the way exams are conducted, and how long it takes for feedback and results to be recieved.
They have numerous employability sessions running throughout the week, everyweek. so ample of opportunity to improve ourselves.
Most: lectureres are approachable and you never get the impression that you're a burden. Least: A very small percentage of lectures are recorded. And not all material which comes up in the exam are covered in lectures / tutorials or workshops.
No Real judgement can be made as i haven't used these facilities too often, but when used they have been to a high standard.
good quality, however the lecture halls need to be improved.
There hasn't been a sport or society which is unavailable, and the range of societies/sports you can do is great
majority of services are porvided to a high standard. however, the University very rarely follows their ''4 week'' policy in relation to providing students with results and feedback. I have had to wait much longer than 4 weeks to recieve grades for assessments and exams, and once recieved the feedback was mostly generic and no specific indication on how my individual performance could be imporved was provided. (2/5) all other services are provided to a very high standard. (4/5)
My experience at Bangor University is the best I’ve had throughout my whole learning career! Teachers are extremely open and helpful, the lectures are usually really engaging and the environment overall makes you feel supported every step of the way. I would recommend studying at Bangor University to anyone, without a doubt!
The University offers TONS of free events and workshops throughout the whole year to help students increase their employability. I personally took part in a few of them, and I was not disappointed at all! I really appreciate all these opportunities offered by my University.
I love interactive seminars, when lectures insert some individual or group tasks, to help us feel more involved. I hate when lecturers keep talking, and talking, and talking without involving us students.
I don’t know much about the Student’s Union
The University’s facilities are amazing! There’s nothing that I would change or add, because it’s great the way it already is!
Yes, absolutely. Everything is within walking distance and easy to reach.
The variety of societies and sports clubs is phenomenal, the best and widest I’ve ever seen!! It’s impossible not to meet new people with so many options to choose from: no wonder Bangor University has been awarded several times for its clubs/societies!
The student supports offered by my University is top notch!! I’ve never felt this supported before!! Teachers and personal tutors really do have our best interest in mind! No matter the problem, you know you can count on the University employees to solve it.
It's been great. Staff are very friendly and deeply knowledgeable, the facilities are very good and the location is amazing for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.
Through access to an array of extra carricular work and through formalised schemes such as the BEA
The answer to both is the lack of support from teaching staff. There are no formal lectures and the honus is on you to get the work done. Support is avaliable but has to be saught. This posses challenges but it's a great and fun way to learn.
Both coud be better, but they arn't awful.
Mind bogglingly enormous choice.
In general it's very good, both academically and mentally. There's always someone around to help, you just need to ask. Because it's quite an intimate departement, even if the first person you ask doens't have an answer there's a good chance they'll know someone who does.
It has been interesting. Everything has its ups and downs. I believe that with a few extra improvements, Bangor University can be the best university in its district.
They hold skill sessions and employability fairs.
I like that I can control what I want to analyze for my course. I do not like the lack of communication from staff and the school; also, lack of organization must be fixed.
I believe they are heavily involved with the school.
They are sufficient.
They are great!
The support is good; I wish it had more resources to help expand.
really friendly university. basically a campus uni, because its so small but it has everything you should need. I've joined loads of new sports and societies and have always felt safe
not really somewhere you would hang on. location is a bit random and I only visit if I have a meeting. however, staff are friendly and informal but remain professional and unbiased. they are familiar faces who I feel comfortable talking to
everything is within 15 minutes walking, and buses are cheap and reliable if visiting other towns or campuses
if you can think of a sport or interest, there's a society for it. they're all very accommodating and you can join as many as you'd like, as they operate on a vary varied schedule
University has been incredibly fun; we've had more field work and trips than I thought we would in first year. Being able to try out different sports/societies without a financial commitment has been amazing - I've been able to try things I've never done before.
We are taught transferable skills that are relevant to the current and predicted job market for our degree courses, and the employability award gives good guidance and motivation to improve our skills independently. There are a good number of placement opportunities - both with the university internships and with outside organisations that the careers department offers information on.
I like the regular tests at the end of some modules, because it takes some of the pressure off the end of term exams and encourages us to go back over material from previous lectures. I do think some of the lecturers go through their material very quickly, which isn't ideal, however they do record the lectures and put the material online for student access so we can catch up after class.
The facilities are good; all of them are easily accessible in the main campus. Our representation is good as well - I think we get a good amount of updates and information via email.
The facilities are very good - there is good computer/printer and library access. Our science labs are also good; there is everything we need to complete our work efficiently and safely.
Yes - the main campus is in town so is a good distance from both accommodation and local amenities. The marine sciences lab is a 40 minute walk away, but transportation is provided in first year so it doesn't feel too far.
There are a huge number of societies and sports!
Our tutors are there for both academic and personal support, which is very good as you can become comfortable with one person. There is further support available if we need it.
Stayed to do a PhD after studying my undergraduate here, can't fault the teaching, support and facilities, especially in SNS Environment. Staff are all very helpful and friendly, I love it at Bangor!
Too targeted at undergraduates!
