Bangor University’s satisfied students
Bangor University continues to rise in popularity among its students. The University has risen to 12th place in the UK and is the only university in Wales to make the top 15 in a new university experience survey (Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2017).
The survey, conducted by YouthSight for the Times Higher Education magazine, asked current students to rate their university experience according to several academic, social and general measures, ranging from the educational content of their degree courses to include facilities and the general atmosphere and whether they’d recommend the university to a friend.
Bangor University is among the top performers in the ‘academic experience’ measure, coming fifth in the UK, an excellent endorsement of the high standard of teaching and student care from the University’s lecturers.
The overall responses of Bangor University students reflected the high educational quality of the learning experience, while factors such as good security, accommodation, sports and general facilities all score highly. Bangor University students also appreciated the good environment around the University, the good social life and the good community atmosphere, scoring these highly.
Vice-Chancellor Professor John G Hughes said: “I am delighted with Bangor’s excellent performance which underlines its fantastic student experience. This follows a remarkable year for Bangor which has also seen it ranked 4th in the UK according to the WhatUni Student Choice Awards and among the top 15 in the UK in the annual National Student Survey.
“I would like to thank the staff and students for their continuous efforts in making Bangor an excellent institution.
“Other successes for Bangor University include achieving excellent results in the Research Excellence Framework which recognised over three-quarters of Bangor’s research as being either “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”.
