"As soon as I visited Bangor University on an open day I fell in love with the city and the surrounding area. The proximity of the University to Snowdonia National Park was definitely one of the reasons why I wanted to attend the University. The selection of clubs and societies available through the Students Union definitely proved to me that this was the University I wanted to attend.
"The course offered a wide array of themes to study during my three years as a student. There were plenty of options available depending on which avenue I wanted to pursue. The course definitely made the most of being in such close proximity to Snowdonia National Park with a number of local trips during the year with different modules. The field trips offered were all very relevant to the course and I personally found that I learnt a lot. My field skills improved vastly and it was also a great chance to get to know fellow students.
"After completing my Undergraduate degree I went on to study an MSc in Disaster Management for Environmental Hazards at the University of South Wales. I decided to do this course because I thoroughly enjoyed the Geohazards module in year 2 at Bangor. My experience at Bangor was very positive and definitely fuelled my enthusiasm to progress further with my education. The skills, both writing and field work, which I developed benefitted me greatly for the MSc. I am currently working for Bristol City Council mapping their assets using Geographical Information Systems (GIS)."
