Tell us what you like about academic teaching quality at Bangor University?
We have world class teaching staff here and I feel pretty satisfied in that regard. We have 'Panapto' where all the lectures are recorded so even if I miss a class I don’t lag behind, I find it very useful. I don't think the academic workload is too strenuous either as I had sufficient time to complete the assignments alongside the classes.
