Health related teaching, training and research

Bangor University has an excellent reputation for its health related teaching, training and research.

In addition to offering degrees at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, we offer short courses for healthcare and allied professionals as well as carrying out a wide range of groundbreaking medical research.

logoThe University and the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board – one of the largest health service providers in Europe – are developing their existing relationship and are exploring a broad range of possible links around research and teaching. Both see the relationship as having the potential to yield significant benefits as they seek to deliver their respective visions within the region.

Our College of Health and Behavioural Sciences has over 3,000 students and boasts a very strong research and teaching ethos that translates into excellent courses.

However our health-related teaching and research isn’t confined to one College alone. We have world-leading research taking place in numerous other areas – for example:

  • the School of Electronic Engineering is working to develop whole body simulations to train surgeons
  • academics in the School of Social Sciences are examining the impact of ageing
  • the School of Music is researching the impact of music on the life of people with dementia
  • the School of Environment, Natural Resources and Geography is a recognised centre for research into E.Coli
  • the School of Biological Sciences is a leading centre for cancer research and is home to the North West Cancer Research Fund Institute.

Our teaching is informed by world-class collaborative research. This means that students have the opportunity to study with academics that are at the cutting edge of their academic disciplines – for example in areas such as elite sports performance, nurse training or fMRI brain imaging.
