Starting university can be a daunting experience to say the least but for international students it doesn't just mean leaving home. Students from over 85 different countries choose to study at Bangor and therefore have to leave their native homeland, their families and friends and move to a foreign country. They not only have to adjust to a new culture and surroundings but in many cases face the challenge of adjusting to a new language.
That's why Bangor have 31 International Student Ambassadors to support international students from the application process right up to their graduation day.
What is an International Student Ambassador?
The ambassadors are all current students have been chosen to represent the University and play a key part in recruitment activities both within Bangor and on overseas visits as well as contribute to the support programme offered to students during their studies at Bangor.
