Postgraduate study

Home to nine Schools and ten Research Centres, Bangor University’s College of Arts and Humanities is a dynamic centre for world-leading research in Arts and Humanities subjects where you will thrive as a researcher. Whatever your academic or professional goals, Bangor University’s long tradition of academic excellence will help you get there.

Maximise your potential...

As a postgraduate student in the College of Arts and Humanities (CAH) you will be supervised by dynamic and rigorous academics whose research has been recognised as world-leading and internationally excellent in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

We offer a wide range of taught postgraduate courses and research degrees across the Arts and Humanities and as a member of the CAH Graduate School you also have access to a wide range of opportunities to develop yourself as a researcher, to discuss your ideas with other PhD students and staff and to receive mentoring from senior academics.

Developing knowledgeable and capable postgraduates...

A primary objective of all our postgraduate programmes is to develop knowledgeable and capable postgraduates and to provide the necessary support throughout their studies.

To help our postgraduate students make the most of the available opportunities, we recommend that all our new student attend the CAH Graduate School Induction Day held during Welcome Week.

The purpose of this event is to give you a warm welcome to CAH’s research community, to guide you through the exciting opportunities of studying at a Welsh University and to inform you of the facilities and support provision at your disposal. You will also have the chance to meet the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Students at Bangor University, the CAH Director of Research and the Director of the Graduate School, as well as other key members of Bangor University.

Your Supervisory Team, your School’s Director of Graduate Studies and staff at CAH’s Graduate School are all experienced academics and support staff from whom you can seek advice at any point during your study with us. For information about their different roles and remits see the CAH Postgraduate Student Handbook.
