About Bangor University
Established in 1884, Bangor University combines traditional academic excellence with cutting-edge research and facilities. Bangor was one of the first universities in the UK to offer degrees in banking and the first to offer a banking MBA. Bangor’s interest in banking goes back to the days of the famous country banker, George Rae, who in 1902 endowed a public lecture series in banking at Bangor that attracted some of the leading thinkers and practitioners of the day.
The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021, published in 2022, recognises that 85% of Bangor University’s research is world-leading or internationally excellent. Bangor University is also classified in the top 10 in the UK for teaching quality and student experience within the Accounting and Finance subject area (The Times and Sunday Times League Table 2022).
