About the University

Situated between the mountains of Snowdonia and the sea, Bangor University boasts one of the most picturesque and safe environments to study in the whole of the United Kingdom. Consistently ranked as one of the most affordable cities in the UK, Bangor is easily accessible from the UK’s major cities, being 1.5 hours from Manchester and Liverpool and 3.5 hours from London.

At Bangor, considerable investment is made into supporting each and every student. We have one of the largest peer guiding schemes in the UK to support new students, including free English language support for international students. Ranked Top-10 in the UK for quality of accommodation, our university halls offer guaranteed accommodation for new international students and a range of room options within easy walking distance of University buildings and the city centre. This contributed to Bangor being listed as a Top-100 ‘International’ university in the world (THE 2015) and a Top-10 UK university for student satisfaction (National Student Survey 2014).
