Peer Guides

Peer Guides are current students who have volunteered and have been trained to help new students settle in. They’ll help you make friends through a range of social events, show you around both the town and the university, and give you information and tips about student life.

What's on during Welcome Week?

Registration

You must register with the University - by enrolling online before you arrive, and have your ID checked when you arrive at Bangor.

You will not have access to university information and on-line teaching and learning materials until you have registered.

Student Finance will not release any funding allocated to you until you are a fully registered student so don’t forget to complete both stages of the process.
