Bangor University was founded in 1884 as a direct result of a public campaign against Wales’ lack of higher education institutions. It was largely funded by the local community who voluntary contributed their wages to its development.
With around 12,000 students and 650 teaching staff, Bangor offers more than 300 undergraduate and 100 postgraduate programmes across five colleges. Although courses are predominantly taught in English, many undergraduate courses are also taught in Welsh.
Bangor’s research received recognition in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, which judged over three quarters of Bangor’s research to be either ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
