Bangor University focuses on improving the student experience, working with the Union to make sure your voice is heard. It's a unique location, with a tight-knit student community and plenty of opportunities to try new things. For our size, we're one of the most environmentally friendly unions in the UK, winning an NUS Green Impact award last year.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
