" I had a wonderful experience at Bangor University. I felt very supported by both academic staff and pastoral staff. I found staff to be very responsive and helpful both with extenuating circumstances and in response to queries. It is by no means an easy course and the second year was easily the hardest due to completing all BPS accreditation modules in one year equalling 5 modules a semester with both essays and examinations. The work however is extremely interesting and they really prepare you for both graduate work or post graduate studying. In terms of clubs, that was the highlight of my university life. i joined two clubs that ran my extra time dry but all by choice. It was the best way for me to make friends and engage in social life that i would normally shy away from. I think the academics could've consumed me if it wasn't for those 2 hour sessions every other day that made me get up, do some exercise and engage with people. I did it throughout my 3 years and still came out with a first class degree. Best experience ever, amazing university, really care about their students, and cheap to live! "

" I've been at Bangor for 4 years now and it exceeded my expectations as I got to the university via clearing. One of the main things that needs improving however is the mental health support available to students. It does have help in place for these sort of issues however the waiting lists are long (for my friend it took 6 weeks to be seen) and a few weeks can make or brake a students overall grade. "

" Overall I had a great time at Bangor University, the location is incredible and I miss it terribly!! With Snowdonia on the doorstep and dreamy spots like Newborough beach not far too, you really are spoiled for choice in terms of nature and areas of outstanding beauty. The support was amazing here too and living costs are pretty low, there is also everything you need in Bangor with a 24h Tesco and cheap petrol, it was a very handy area to live in. I really enjoyed the library there as well, although the coffee in it wasn't the best! however, a little walk to Pontio, one of Bangor's major buildings, great coffee and food was readily available. Lecturers were overall great as well, providing lots of support and most replying to emails quite promptly. My time spent there was probably the best years of my life so far. If you like nature and an awesome learning environment, this is the place! "

" Very underrated University. Great staff, research/social facilities and atmosphere. Very supportive with good social clubs to get involved in. Enjoyed being here though many can feel a little "cut-off". "
