About the University
Bangor University is a long-established institution, with over 120 years' dedication to academic excellence. Over half of the Schools assessed to date in the teaching quality assessments have received the top rating of 'excellent', and the most recent Research Assessment Exercise confirms its status as a world-class research institution with an international reputation.
Living in Bangor enables students to combine a high-quality educational experience with a wonderful living environment. Bangor is regarded to be amongst the UK's best university locations, situated between the mountains of Snowdonia and the Irish Sea and offering some of the finest beaches and most beautiful scenery in the country. North Wales is an area of outstanding natural beauty, yet close to major cities such as Manchester and Liverpool, so travelling to and from Bangor is easy, with London also easily accessible by direct train.
The University offers a variety of tailored postgraduate bursaries and scholarships, allowing numerous opportunities for all students to partially or fully fund their postgraduate study. Information about specific funding opportunities can be obtained from individual academic schools via the University's main website, www.bangor.ac.uk.
