Bangor named the most international university in Wales

Bangor University has been listed among the 200 most international universities globally and the most international university in Wales in a table published today (14 January 2016).

The table of the most international universities is drawn from data contained in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, where the University appears among the top 350 world Universities.

Bangor University’s appearance at 107th in the table of global universities with the most international outlook confirms the University’s strategic mission to be an international University for the region.

Welcoming the news of the University’s growing international reputation, Vice-Chancellor Professor John G Hughes said:

We are increasing our study and research partnerships with universities around the globe. Our vision is to be a leading University with an international reputation for teaching and research, promoting and exporting our own and the region’s capabilities and values.”
