Hughes said: “The University continues to provide students with an excellent education combined with outstanding student support and opportunities to learn and gain valuable career-enhancing experiences while at Bangor University.  We always recommend that prospective students consider every aspect of their university experience, and sources such as league tables, surveys and Awards provide valuable endorsements which underpin the valuable impression made by a visit to a Bangor University Open Day.
