Student Profile: Emma Collins – BSc in Psychology
Why did you choose Bangor?
As soon as I arrived, I felt welcomed, the atmosphere was much friendlier and relaxed than other universities. I immediately met amazing friends and engaging lecturers, while also being surrounded by beautiful scenery.
Everything is amazing but I particularly love the very wide range of content, allowing me to explore many areas whilst focusing on down what I enjoy the most.
Clubs and societies
I am involved in three volunteering organisations, which all provide excellent opportunities for myself and those that we help. I participate in LEAPs (leap into literacy), which is a tutoring service for dyslexic children. Another is Splodge, an after-school club. The final volunteering I do is Walk&Talk with Connect@Bangor. This involves two weekly group walks around Bangor and some special events and gatherings. This provides a place to get away from stress and pressure to spend some time talking, relaxing and making friends.
There are many chances to gain vital subject specific experience and amazing extra-curricular opportunities. We are surrounded by incredible places to go - castles, rivers, and mountains.
