Study Languages at Bangor

Modern Languages and Cultures at Bangor means learning on a human scale; we offer facilities equal or superior to those found in many larger universities, but in an environment where everybody – students and staff – gets to know each other quickly, and where there's always someone to turn to. You are never "just a name" in our department.
