I am certain I would not be where I am today if I had not studied at Bangor University. Without the dedicated support and encouragement from my lecturers, I would not have pushed myself to apply for a master’s and would most likely have settled for a job I wasn’t satisfied with. Instead, I completed my MSc and started a position I am incredibly passionate about straight out of university.
My experience at BBS continues to shape my life on many levels. I have come to understand more about the academic culture, diversity, and most importantly having a sense of purpose in life, and this is on-going and shall only be improved in the years to come.
I choose Bangor due to the ranking of the Financial Economics course, the syllabus, and the location of the University. I grew up in the centre of Athens and thus wanted to move to a more remote and smaller town. Bangor's located in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, that coupled with the university’s student satisfaction statistics made me take the plunge and I must say I never regretted it!
Bangor University was the foundation to my professional career. I learnt a lot about Banking and Finance and developed a discipline which was very helpful in my career. Participating in course-related activities and competitions gave me an excellent opportunity to improve my skills and differentiate myself from others when applying for jobs.
The nurturing nature and unwavering support I received from my lecturers in Bangor Business School during my amazing three year experience has instilled into me a level of confidence that I have since encompassed into all aspects of my life.
