Rebecca Lloyd, 20 from Chester, won a scholarship to study computer systems with business studies. Her scholarship has been a help towards fees and first choiceof accommodation.

"I thought Bangor seemed like a very friendly university and all the departments are very close together unlike the universities where campuses are widespread. I also thought the available accommodation was the best out of all the universities I visited.

"Bangor is a great place, it may be small but it is very lively due to it being a student city. Nightlife is good with lots of bars and student clubs. There is always something going on for you to go and see. "

"I would have to say that when you get up early in the morning and head for lectures, and you can see the mountains in front of you with the snow on the top and the sun shining, you truly believe you are in paradise or close to it. It is truly an exceptional and magical place to live."
