My university experience has been very positive. The university has been in contact during my year abroad and they've helped tremendously in the past too. I love my course and the tutors who are so supportive and I love the classes too. I've made many friends through my course and societies and for that I'm very grateful. I've also had the opportunity to achieve a dream of mine, which was to learn Welsh, even to the point where I have been doing Welsh medium modules! I can't say thank you enough to this university and the people in it.

Good bar the work load that comes with my course. The university itself is great especially when it came to the financial aid I needed. The accommodation is beyond my expectations making me to stay in halls two years in a row and hopefully three.

Amazing. Not being bias, but Bangor is by far the coziest, friendliest university. All the lecturers behave like friends whilst maintaining professionalism which makes you feel more comfortable to talk to them. I have over 80 other students in my class and I know all of their names - we're like a family. I will be sad to leave them when we graduate!

I have loved Uni at Bangor, initially I wasn’t sure and it took me a while to set in, but it really grew on me and I began to really enjoy the course and everything else that happens at the uni. If I could go back now and make a different decision, I wouldn’t change my mind for a second.

Bangor uni is the perfect place for me. I feel the lectures and the standard of teaching is really good. I’ve had great experiences whilst at uni both through the course and the clubs and of course with friends. I’ve had some great field trip I especially enjoyed getting to go out on the uni boat.
