"The National Student Survey provides important information for prospective students researching what course to follow at which University. Our focus at Bangor is on providing a high quality teaching and learning experience for our students. We also use this information to assess our performance and improve our students' learning experiences further," said Professor Colin Baker, Pro Vice Chancellor at Bangor University.

We're also delighted that, yet again, our Music students have responded exceptionally positively to their experience at our School of Music.
