Great university

Great unioversity, had a few friends who went there. The area is very nice and the university remionds me of Hogwarts. The people are freindly and there are many shops around.

What an ugly building! Live nearby and never fail to dislike the place every time I go by. Bangor seems to have lost the plot (IMHO). One year late opening and the money could have been used for something worthwhile and something which suits this poor, benighted, city. It is only complemented by the Asda store opposite.

Bangor University is just great! Helpful lecturers, great people and atmosphere and beautiful surroundings (I had a view on the sea and mountains at same time!) I really appreciate the fact that the sport clubs were free of charge for students and that it was easily to feel the real student atmosphere there! I studied MBA Environmental Management and I...

A beautiful setting steeped with history, gorgeous architecture and staff who are happy to talk. The central gardens reminded me of a film set and don't miss the restaurant, The terrace, quite special..

I went to the open day last year when looking for prospective universities. I was interested in the media course. When we turned up the building was amazing somewhat like harry potter! The halls of residence was ok but the course was awful. We turned up to talk to the media lecturers and 'professional' teachers and course leaders. Non of... More

Open day was very informative and very well organised. It is advisable to get a taxi to the University as parking is difficult.

Lovely architecture at the main building on college road, however the neighbouring building is totally out of character. It looks like something out of a 70s sci-fi movie and spoils the grandeur of the big building.

The University is very old & beautiful. We sat through the opening speech then followed the student to the appropriate room for another talk. Then at the end the lecturer asked what everyone wanted to study. She spoke to us at the end to say we were in the wrong place & should have been in Wrexham. Now if she... More
