Aria Studio Virtual Tour
Do you have a question about life as a Bangor University student? Our ambassadors will be happy to help you find the answer.
They can tell you more about studying here, about the amazing Clubs and Societies we have, and how they made friends and settled into life at university as a Film, Media and Journalism student.
If you have any questions about the course, our lecturers are on hand to help. Below are some examples of frequently asked questions. Can you think of any more?
- What are the qualities of a successful Film, Media and Journalism student at Bangor?
- How can I prepare myself to study Film, Media and Journalism at Bangor?
- How will I know that Film, Media and Journalism at Bangor is the right choice for me?
I had a wonderful time at Bangor University, it started off a little bit wobbly, moving so far away from home but when I joined a couple of societies my experience completely changed. The course offered was so different to what else was on offer, it didn’t limit me to one vocation. When I came for an open day, I was stunned by the environment and knew it was the right place for me.
Our Research in Film, Media and Journalism
We are inter-disciplinary, collaborative, creative and critical. In the most recent national assessment of research quality (REF 2014), all of the School’s research impact was of either world-leading or internationally excellent in quality.
Our key strengths are the work of our staff in digital culture, media and persuasive communication and creative theory and practice (practice-as-research).
We have particularly strong relationships within the media and creative industries sector in Wales, and also engage with the creative economy more generally, within the UK and beyond. This informs several aspects of our research activities, as well as helping to promote our work. At a community level, we regularly participate in projects and developments that not only give valuable opportunities to our students, but also help in terms of overall impact and awareness of our activities. The companies and organisations with whom we have collaborated recently include BAFTA Cymru, independent TV company Cwmni Da, NoFit State Circus and Carers Outreach.
We have a thriving and friendly research culture. Our weekly research series features Bangor colleagues, postgraduate students, and researchers and practitioners from across the UK and beyond in a supportive, if critical, environment. We also invite special guests, visiting scholars, and others to present on their research and practice.
