Bangor University among the best in Student Life Survey

As Bangor University gears up to welcome prospective students to two Open Days this month (Saturday 11 & 25 October), staff at the University have welcomed the University’s inclusion in yet another table of Britain’s Top universities.

Hard on the heels of positive placing in the Times Higher World University Rankings, The Times & Sunday Times Good University Guide and the National Student Satisfaction Survey results, comes the University’s inclusion at number 27 in the second annual University Quality of Student Life Survey by Lloyds Bank.

The survey quantifies student satisfaction according to a range of indicators covering the course quality, employment and earnings potential, accommodation cost, sports facilities, social life and crime.

Welcoming the latest survey Professor Oliver Turnbull Pro Vice Chancellor, Teaching & Learning said;

“We have a great offer here at Bangor. Not only 130 years of offering excellent teaching and student care, but recently introduced initiatives to give students a stronger voice in the University. The success of our approach is reflected in these recent results, and I'm delighted to see us doing well in yet another student survey.”

In addition to offering free membership od Societies and Sports Clubs for students the only public university in the UK to offer this, the University has recently invested £2.5m in the sports facilities at the University’s Canolfan Brailsford and the completion of Bangor City's new 3G pitch which was developed with the financial support of University.

The University’s stunning location, the low cost of living and the offer of guaranteed accommodation in one of the University’s modern halls of residence are also contributing factors.

“Surveys are a useful source of information for prospective students considering Bangor University, but we always advocate a personal visit during one of our many open days throughout the year, to help prospective students make their decision,” commented Carys Roberts, Assistant Director of Marketing at Bangor University.
