Bangor University offers over 150 postgraduate programmes in 25 distinct subject areas, set against the spectacular backdrop of the mountains and sea in North Wales - a location described by Lonely Planet as “one of the best regions in the world to visit”. Which means you can have it both ways. Walk, climb, surf and kayak, visit castles and coastlines, lakes and lighthouses, stroll on the pier, study on the beach – and come away with a postgrad degree from one of the top 50 universities in the UK*.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching and our courses and lecturers were rated second in the UK at the What Uni Student Choice Awards 2018. Bangor University has also achieved a Gold Award for teaching, the highest rating possible, in the national Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).
Bangor University is ranked in the top 40 in the UK for research**, according to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. The REF recognised that more than three-quarters of Bangor’s research is either world-leading or internationally excellent, ahead of the average for UK universities.
