Welcoming students to the North of Wales, Bangor and its beautifully situated University campus boast arguably the most illustrious of academic surroundings of any educational facility in the UK. As one of the smallest cities in Britain, Bangor houses almost as many term time students as it does full time residents, whilst the locals maintain a firm commitment to the Welsh tongue.
Bangor University lies at the foot of the Snowdonia National Park, offering students a wonderful location to carry out their further educational pursuits. Courses range from Agriculture to English Literature, Music to Modern Languages and, with a keen focus upon international students, Bangor University is one of the most progressive institutes of higher education around.
Bangor Student Union encourages academics to get involved. From Ultimate Frisbee to Underwater Hockey, the campus runs a wide range of clubs and societies, ideal for making the most of the surrounding areas of natural beauty. The Union itself also plays host to a surprising collection of star names, with the likes of Mr Hudson, Rizzle Kicks, Feeder and Tinie Tempah all having graced the Bangor Union stage.
Bangor nightlife may not take the big city approach. But, for such a small community, you are treated to a selection of small clubs, while you can expect to get to know the locals in pubs such as Y Hen Glan, known for an excellent selection of food, drink and live acts. Be assured, for those looking to do the traditional student pub crawl, you will not be disappointed, and with the Octagon club open until 3am, you can still enjoy that big city feel, without the big city expense.
Local leisure facilities are punctuated by the outdoors, with the likes of Bangor Castle’s Walled Garden, Crawfordsburn Country Park and Bangor Marina highlighting the wonderful natural treats in store for all students of Bangor University.
