Bangor University was founded in 1884, making it one of the oldest and most prestigious degree awarding institutions in the UK.
For more than 120 years, students from all over the world have graduated from Bangor and gone on to achieve great success in their chosen careers.
Students choose Bangor for its excellence in teaching and research. Over half of our schools have received the top rating of 'excellent' for the quality of education, and, in the most recent assessment of the quality of research at UK universities, Bangor was identified as being a world-class institution.
Institute for Competition and Procurement Studies
The Law School’s Institute for Competition and Procurement Studies is rapidly establishing itself as a leading, international research and teaching centre in the area of Competition and Public Procurement Law studies.
Strong support for research activities
The University provides strong support for research activities and actively encourages links with commercial and industrial bodies in the UK and overseas. We aim to be responsive to local and regional needs while maintaining and pursuing international ambitions.
To help with these ambitions, the campus has undergone a £20m redevelopment which includes a £10m business and management centre and a new building for environmental sciences. We have also worked with business and industry on the development of Pontio, a £36m Arts and Innovation Centre which includes a theatre, exhibition spaces and a new Students' Union; and high profile projects such as CAST (Centre for Advanced Software Technology) at Parc Menai, Bangor, and the Technium OpTIC at St Asaph Business Park.
