Bangor University placed in the Times Higher Education Art & Humanities rankings

Bangor University’s arts and humanities courses have been ranked second in Wales and amongst the top 250 worldwide in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2018 by subject released today.

The 2018 arts and humanities table ranks universities across core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

Bangor University’s College of Arts and Humanities courses cover a wide range of subjects from History to English Literature with courses in Archaeology, Celtic Studies, French Studies, Iberian Studies, Journalism, Linguistics, Music and Philosophy, all achieving 100% satisfaction in the 2017 National Student Survey.

Professor Andrew Edwards, Dean, College of Arts and Humanities, said: “We’re delighted that the high quality of our arts and humanities provision has been recognised in these rankings. Colleagues across the College who have contributed to our reputation for world-leading research and teaching in these fields are to be congratulated. We look forward to welcoming our new and returning students next week.”

Earlier this month, Bangor University retained its position among the top 350 universities worldwide for the fourth year in succession, in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. In addition, Bangor University was also placed within the top 10% of universities globally for its International Outlook.

Bangor University was awarded Gold for the standard of its teaching in the UK Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework, becoming the only university in Wales to be awarded the top standard earlier on in the year.
