Bangor University is a thriving, forward-looking institution offering excellent postgraduate opportunities in both taught courses and research degrees over a wide variety of academic disciplines. We are committed to encouraging each and every individual student to reach their full potential.
Teaching standards are high with most academic schools rated 'excellent' for teaching quality. Coupled with the high calibre of research activity, students on taught postgraduate courses can enjoy teaching of a high standard delivered by true experts in their field. Our high ratio of teaching staff to students enables us to focus on each student's individual needs, and our links with overseas academic institutions mean that the University attracts high-profile academics from all over the world. The Centre for Cancer Research and the 5* rated School of Psychology are prime examples. Our postgraduate students come from over 50 countries world-wide, creating the kind of metropolitan feel in both the University and the wider city that makes living and studying in Bangor such an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
Many of our Research Institutes are recognised as Centres of Excellence, endorsing their innovative and creative approaches and their role in contributing to regional prosperity. Partnerships are formed with government organisations and private companies, and a recently forged partnership with the Wales Development Agency and European Commission is currently facilitating the creation of a world-class Management Development Centre for North Wales, a new development on the University campus.
