Bangor is one of the UK’s smallest city and is described as the best university setting in the UK. Close to the North Wales coast and picturesque mountains including Snowdonia, students can take advantage of a city, coastal and rural lifestyle.
With Bangor University’s 11,650 students and staff forming more than half of the city’s 22,000 population, the university and its students are a significant asset to the region. The city is a popular choice for students – it features in the top 15 for The Times’ Higher Education UK student experience rankings, therefore underpinning the demand for student accommodation in the city. Bangor University’s research was judged as ‘world leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’ in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. The university is also a major provider of training and education for the NHS in Wales.
