Situated between the Snowdonia National Park and the waters of the Menai Strait, Bangor University enjoys one of the most beautiful settings of any UK university. It’s a major attraction for students, who can discover the mountains, lakes and coastal waters and get involved in outdoor pursuits.

Since its foundation in 1884, the University has balanced academic excellence with a great student experience. It’s made up of three colleges and 10 academic schools, spanning the arts, humanities and sciences. Teaching standards have been recognised as top-class.

The small community of around 11,000 students makes Bangor a friendly campus, and students settle in quickly. The high-quality accommodation is all within walking distance of the University, and all first years applying before the deadline are guaranteed a room.

The cost of living at Bangor is notably low: it was rated the UK’s most affordable university by TotallyMoney in 2019. The University has also earned accolades for student satisfaction, and for the high level of support that’s on offer.
