Academic excellence and a friendly atmosphere
Bangor University is a friendly, convenient and student-centred place to study, with the size and friendly nature of the University being one of the main reasons many of our students choose to study here.
Free membership of all our clubs and societies
In the 2020 WhatUni Student Choice Awards, Bangor University was voted second best in the UK for Societies and Sports.
The location, the scenery and the surrounding area are also amongst the reasons why students choose to come to Bangor. All this on your doorstep adds a different dimension to student life, with plenty of places to visit in Snowdonia and the Isle of Anglesey, as well as easy access to cities such as Liverpool, Manchester and Dublin for shopping trips or days out.
Bangor is a small city near the sea. So, it's not always crowded with people which is a nice change. The nature around Bangor makes for a beautiful environment. The nearby Snowdonia national park allows students to go outside, relieve stress from university work and explore the vast nature.Veronika Jehlickova
