Student satisfaction

Bangor offers a unique university experience. From our stunning location close to the mountains and the sea to our world-class research facilities and quality teaching, you’ll find the ideal environment to unlock your potential and go beyond all expectations.

Bangor students are amongst the most satisfied in the UK

The National Student Survey (NSS) results reflects the University’s focus on overall student experience. The results – released July 2019 – place Bangor amongst the UK’s top 10 universities for student satisfaction*.

Professor Oliver Turnbull, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Teaching & Learning at Bangor University commented on the results saying:

“Bangor University has been providing excellent teaching and strong support for students for more than 130 years, and I’m delighted to see that the results of the survey yet again reflect this.

“The fact that we have been ranked in the top 10 of UK Universities for three years in succession proves that students at Bangor are delighted with their choice of university."  

This year, of all the Universities that offer a broad range of subjects, Bangor is ranked 9th in the UK, with an overall satisfaction rate of 88%. This is above the UK average of 84%, and that of Wales at 85%.

Investment in the student experience

An on-going investment in facilities and services is further enhancing the Bangor student experience.

The exciting Pontio Arts and Innovation Centre, the St Mary’s Student Village and improved sports facilities at Canolfan Brailsford are amongst the most recent developments.

The University also runs initiatives such as the Bangor Employability Award to help with personal and career development. There are also options to study or work abroad as part of your degree.
