Geography is the subject of our time, dynamic and constantly evolving as the world around us changes. It bridges the gap across social and natural sciences, and at Bangor we take an interdisciplinary approach. Our degrees allow you to explore the physical processes that shape the Earth, the social, cultural and economic processes that influence people and places, and the human-environment relationships. Our students develop their knowledge and a broad understanding of geography, alongside professional and transferrable skills that allow them to compete successfully for jobs in a range of careers and sectors.

The placement year provides you with a fantastic opportunity to broaden your horizons and develop valuable skills and contacts through working with an organization relevant to your degree subject. Previous and current students have worked with a wide variety of placement providers, ranging from private companies to educational organizations, charities, government authorities and non-governmental organizations. Our students who have undertaken a placement year have highlighted how the experience has helped them to develop invaluable networks, confidence and life experience as well as subject knowledge and skills that have boosted their employability.

The Placement Year is undertaken at the end of the second year and students are away for the whole of the academic year. The minimum period in placement (at one or more locations) is seven calendar months; more usually you would spend 10-12 months with a placement provider.

Placements can be UK-based or overseas and you will work with staff to plan and finalise the placement arrangements.

Sut i Ymgeisio

Sut i wneud cais drwy UCAS

UCAS yw’r Gwasanaeth Derbyniadau i Brifysgolion a Cholegau. Mae pob cais i’r brifysgol yn cael ei brosesu drwy UCAS ac yna’n cael ei drosglwyddo i’r prifysgolion a restrwyd.

Gall myfyrwyr wneud cais am hyd at bum cwrs. Ar gyfer Meddygaeth, Deintyddiaeth a chyrsiau Milfeddygol dim ond pedwar cwrs caiff myfyrwyr restru.

Mae’r ffurflen gais i’w chael ar wefan UCAS, o dan ‘Apply’.

Pryd i wneud cais?

Rydym yn eich cynghori i wneud cais cyn gynted ag y gellwch gan y byddwn yn dechrau ystyried ceisiadau a gwneud cynigion yn syth. Dyddiad cau cychwynnol UCAS yw 15 Ionawr, ond rydym yn croesawu ceisiadau ar ôl y dyddiad hwn. Bydd ceisiadau a dderbynnir rhwng 15 Ionawr a 30 Mehefin yn parhau i gael eu hanfon at brifysgolion gan UCAS i gael eu hystyried lle bod lleoedd dal ar gael.

Datganiad Personol

Y Datganiad Personol yw’r rhan o’r ffurflen gais sy’n gofyn am fwyaf o waith.

Cewch ddefnyddio dim ond 47 o linellau neu 500–550 o eiriau i egluro pam yr ydych am astudio’r cwrs, a’r sgiliau sydd gennych sy’n hanfodol ar gyfer astudio yn y brifysgol.

I ysgrifennu datganiad personol llwyddiannus mae’n rhaid i chi fod â dealltwriaeth dda am y cwrs a’i gynnwys. Cofiwch mai dim ond un datganiad personol rydych yn ei hysgrifennu ar gyfer eich pum dewis.

Gwnewch yn siwr bod y cyrsiau yn debyg, os nad yw yr un fath, a gwnewch yn siŵr nad ydych yn sôn am gwrs neu brifysgol penodol.

Darllenwch ein cyngor ar ysgrifennu datganiad personol llwyddianus neu gwyliwch ein fideos.

Ar ôl gwneud cais

Gallwch gadw llygaid ar eich cais drwy system UCAS ‘Track’. Bydd cynigion gan brifysgolion yn ymddangos ar Track a gallwch dderbyn neu wrthod cynnig.

Rhaid i chi fod wedi derbyn atebion gan bob prifysgol cyn y gallwch ymateb. Mae dau fath o ymateb – derbyn pendant (firm acceptance) a derbyn wrth gefn (insurance acceptance). Fel arfer mae myfyrwyr yn ymateb ar ddechrau mis Mai.

Ansicr am eich camau nesaf?

Ewch i'n gwefan Paratoi ar gyfer y Brifysgol am wybodaeth pellach ynglŷn a sut i wneud cais.
