Student Support

Peer Guides

At Bangor, we place a high priority on caring for and supporting our students. This is reflected in the fact that Bangor is rated one of the top universities in the UK for student support (Times Higher Education). 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.
