My experience at Bangor University was extremely positive as it gave me several opportunities to develop personally and professionally over the four years of study. The University supported my personal growth greatly by giving me opportunities to develop my self-confidence, enhance my critical thinking skills and encouraged building meaningful relationships with other students and businesses worked with.
My MBA Environmental Management gave me leverage to obtain my current role with HALO and it also provided me with some new friends, including University staff who I will keep in touch with going forward. My online communication skills significantly improved due to the nature of the online course delivery and socialising.
Not only has my experience at the school given me the knowledge as a base for my career, but it has sparked a confidence in me that I never thought I had. I now know I have what it takes to be a successful marketeer and have already started climbing my professional ladder. Bangor Business School has helped me build confidence and believe in myself and allowed me to find my passion which is now my career.
Bangor is just a fantastic place to be. The scenery is amazing, and the University itself looks incredible. I’d heard great things about the student experience in Bangor, so I knew it would be a place I would enjoy. There were some really great lecturers that genuinely cared about students success. It’s more than just a job to them. And a lot of them stay in touch after as well!
I loved studying at Bangor, it’s a wonderful University set within a beautiful part of North Wales. The modules were interesting, the staff members were supportive, and the opportunities were endless! In addition to gaining a job role within my Degree subject, I have gained and strengthened so many other employability skills through the opportunities that the Business School provided.
0:06 Well the staff are so friendly and accessible I knew I could go to them with any issues I
0:11 had or any questions about assignments it was a really relaxed atmosphere and relationship
0:16 that I had with them and I knew that they cared about what I was interested in as well.
0:21 I made the most out of the societies because when you come to University for the first time it was
0:26 nice to know that there was just so many different opportunities available there was a running
0:30 club, we would run around Bangor sometimes in Treborth and that just offered the opportunity
0:36 to get out and about meet people again. I'm making friends now that I've made for life.
0:42 We do offer personal one-to-one tutee's and it's just a really colligative atmosphere to work in
0:48 and I do sincerely believe the students benefit from that as well. When students are actually engaging
0:53 with you which is fantastic and you know that you're making a difference that's really rewarding.
1:00 They were always happy to help any time you send an email they'd answer
1:03 so as soon as they could. Just that total support there all the time only an email away and all
1:04 the new friends I've made and all the communities in Bangor it's great.
1:17 So I lived up at
1:18 the St Mary's Halls which is quite a nice little tight-knit community it was really good and really
1:23 refreshing as well to have people both from my course in my flat but also from other courses.
1:31 Bangor is such a beautiful area you've got Snowdon or the Wyddfa so close by and just
1:36 being able to climb that venture around to different parts of North Wales is brilliant.
Every year we see hundreds of students graduate from Bangor Business School in the Summer and Winter. Here is a look at what at some had to say as they reflect back on their time at Bangor University during Winter Graduation.
