UK Top 10 for SENRGy subjects in 2016 Good University Guide

The latest edition of The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide has bought great news for the School of Environmental Natural Resources and Geography (SENRGy). Hot on the heals of fantastic results in the recent National Student Survey, Bangor has been ranked in the UK Top 10 in the Agriculture and Forestry subject area.

The overall 7th place in the UK for Agriculture and Forestry in the Good University Guide, also includes Top 10 ratings in the following indicators: teaching quality, student experience, research quality and graduate prospects. Of particular note is that teaching quality in Agriculture and Forestry is now rated 2nd in the UK.

SENRGy saw improvement in all its subject areas in these most recent rankings, which have followed a record year of student recruitment for the School. An improvement of 14 ranking points in the Geography and Environmental Science subject area, sees Bangor now ranked 39th out of 74 institutions in the UK.

John Healey, Professor of Forest Sciences at Bangor University, commented that the results “reflect the ongoing development and innovation in our teaching as well continued production of high quality research outputs”. Professor Morag McDonald, Head of School for SENRGy, added that “it’s another good news story for the School and a further indication that we are delivering on both student experience, teaching quality and research performance”.
