A dream location for outdoor lovers: the stunning Snowdonia National Park on one side, the sea on the other, and closer by old buildings line a small but historic city. Coupled with being one of cheapest places to be a student in the UK according to the Independent, and a recent campus redevelopment, it’s a pretty attractive place to be an undergraduate.
And quality isn’t sacrificed either – the national Research Assessment Exercise shows that world leading research is being carried out at Bangor University. Areas of particular excellence include Accounting and Finance (rated top in the UK) and Electronic Engineering (second in the UK). To add some famous names to the mix: Danny Boyle and Dr Robert Edwards are alumni, whilst honorary degrees have been awarded to to Sir David Attenborough and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
