Undergraduate Courses at Bangor University
In French, German, Italian and Spanish, there are separate entry routes for students who have A-level or equivalent in the language subject and those who do not.
In addition to the single honours degree courses, it is also possible to study two subjects in equal proportions within one degree course. These are called joint honours degrees. You may study one subject at Bangor Business School and another subject at another Academic School. It is also possible to study for a degree in which two-thirds of the study will be in the Bangor Business School subject and the remaining one-third in a subject from another School, or vice versa. Please see below for all of the combinations available.
