Postgraduate Study at Bangor

Established in 1884, Bangor University has a long tradition of academic excellence that continues to this day.

Bangor University's research has a major impact around the world according to a national assessment of research quality (REF 2014).

The 2014 Research Excellence Framework recognised that more than three-quarters of Bangor's research is either world-leading or internationally excellent. Based on the University submission of 14 Units of Assessment, 77% of the research was rated in the top two tiers of research quality, ahead of the average for all UK universities.

Bangor University prides itself on the quality of teaching offered, and a recent review by the UK Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) resulted in the highest possible endorsement of the University's academic standards. The 'confidence' judgement by the QAA is the highest of the three ratings possible and confirmation of the University's academic standing and profile.
