OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.

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.

Job Prospects
How does your uni make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?

We have the BEA (Bangor employability award) and a record is produced keeping track of any extra curricular activities you partake in

Course and Lecturers
What do you like most and least about the way your course(s) are taught?

I like the ocean science lectures and how they are often recorded so you can go back and listen to them for revision. I like the fact that lectures are passionate in these lectures and enthusiastic about their work and research. I’m not a fan of the way the natural science modules are thought I find that there’s not much information on slides and there’s no recordings. I find that for these lectures it’s either over explaining ‘easy’ content and underesplaing other content that ‘everyone had a module on last year’- except this was not a module available for my course

How many contact hours per week do you have?

15

Students' Union
What do you think of your Students' Union? If you don't get involved, why not?

From the point of view of a committee member of a sports team I feel that the student union do a lot however in some aspects when I have been dealing with things for my club they have been uninformed and not cooperated

Uni Facilities
How good are your university’s facilities?

The facilities are fantastic! The main arts building is clearly an old building and with old features but it is beautiful. There are lots of more modern areas to study if this isn’t your cup of tea. Pontio is great, the library facilities are good

City Life
What’s the city life like?

Bangor isn’t exactly a big city life kind of place. It’s the type of place that’s perfect if you like the outdoors. There’s still night life though and shops. It’s just small but some people prefer this

Clubs and Societies
What are the clubs and societies like?

The clubs and societies are great...there’s so many and they’re all free to join!!! Everyone is so welcoming into the clubs. I feel like each club is like a little family

Student Support
How good is the support offered by the uni? Think both academic (tutors/feedback) and personal (counselling, etc).

I think this varies across the schools. School of ocean science is great- feedback is always on time and really helpful. On the other hand I’m still waiting for marks from essays for natural sciences that were supposed to have been given out nearly a month ago and when I’ve queried this I’ve had no response from the module organiser

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!

Very good lots of society’s but should consider spending the money on more important academic things because they have enough clubs and society’s it’s good for socialism but should be spend on something else

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.

Met a lot of people through different events at university. Its been great, both academically and for my personal life. Opportunities to develop your career are easy to grab and plenty, so you have the choice to choose what skills you want to equip yourself with
