Support, Careers and Employability
At Bangor, we place a high priority on caring for and supporting our students. From Welcome Week onwards, you'll be given as much help and support as possible with health and welfare matters as well as your academic work.
The Peer Guide scheme and the Personal Tutor system mean that there is always another student or academic member of staff that you can turn to, while the Student Services Centre provides a professional support service for students. The services offered range from financial advice to welfare support, study skills, dyslexia support and counselling.
There is also a dedicated Disability team to provide advice and guidance on a range of disability-related matters.
Visit the Student Services website to find out about the wide range of support on offer.
International Student Ambassadors
Students from over 85 different countries choose to study at Bangor and therefore have to leave their native homeland, their families and friends and move to a foreign country. Bangor University strongly believes in looking after their students and making sure that everyone is made to feel welcome and settles in with ease. That’s why Bangor has over 20 International Student Ambassadors to support international students from the application process right up to their graduation day.
