Why Bangor?

‘I came to Bangor University to take up the position of a Lecturer in Adult Nursing, however  I have always had an affiliation with the University through my own previous experience of being a student here, completing my Diploma in Professional Practice, BSc (Hons) Health Studies and my Post-Graduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education. Therefore being given the opportunity to join the School of Health Care Sciences as a member of staff to work with such an inspiring team who have helped nurture and shape my career pathway,  has to date been the pinnacle of my career and I feel very privilege to be here’.
