What is the social life like in Bangor? Are you involved in any societies or sports teams? How easy it is to make friends here?
The events organised by the International Education Centre are very enjoyable where I got to meet lots of other international students. Bar Uno (the Bar/restaurant/club) on Ffriddoedd site is a very fun and social place to make and meet friends. I like that the city is quite small because it means that it is very social and friendly. During my time here I joined one of the AU clubs and was nominated for course rep for the 2nd year, it was good fun and a good way to meet lots of new people.
Your experience of living in university accommodation OR private accommodation?
I lived in private accommodation in the lower part of Bangor, I found the house to be very comfortable, modern and convenient for all my needs. The supermarket and train station were quite close to my house and I only had to walk 10 minutes or less in order to get to the buildings my lectures were in.

The advantage of being in this type of atmosphere as a student is that you don’t get distracted as easily as you would in a busy city, such as where I am from in India.

Having done research I have found the UK to be one of the most highly regarded countries to obtain a degree from.
