An impressive 77% of all the staff at Bangor who were assessed were placed in the top 4, 5 and 5* grades, demonstrating research of international excellence.
Outstanding teaching and academic support from professors and lecturers is a key factor if students are to succeed. The Teaching Quality Assessment (TQA) is conducted on behalf of the Government to rate individual departments within universities. More than 50% of the departments assessed to date in the TQA have achieved the top rating of 'excellent'. In the recent UK wide Student Satisfaction Survey for 2008, Bangor University was placed in the top 10 of UK universities for teaching quality, 85% of all students being satisfied with the teaching on their course.
In order to build upon the achievements and reputation of the university, over £67million has been committed to strengthen our facilities and for the recruitment of new leading academic staff.

£5 million investment in CAST - Centre for Advanced Software Technology.
£3.5 million investment in a major Cancer Research Centre.
£8 million in new National Environmental Sciences Centre.
£35 million to build state of the art accommodation for student.

Market research shows that the cost of living in Bangor is much lower than in other parts of the UK. According to The Independent A-Z of Universities and Higher Education Colleges, Bangor is ‘one of the cheapest places in Britain’ to be a student. As a university which places great emphasis on student support, we also offer extra help to new students by funding scholarships and bursaries worth over £2.5 million.

In addition, Luton International Airport offers low-cost, direct flights to many European cities, including Edinburgh, Dublin, Amsterdam, Geneva, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Milan, Athens, Larnaca, Berlin, Bratislava, Budapest, Cracow and Warsaw.
We are a truly international student and staff community in a British setting. We have more than 3000 international students from 120 different countries. Come and join us and find out why the University of Bedfordshire is such a popular choice for international students.
We offer a wide variety of courses: art, design, business (including MBA), tourism, advertising, education, marketing, public relations, computing (including conversion Masters for non-computing graduates), law (including LLM), media, nursing, health care, biomedical science, social sciences, sport and psychology. We have programmes at Bachelors, Masters and Research levels, as well as a wide range of English language foundation programmes.
Bedfordshire's record – and hence reputation – for excellent teaching is due to its outstanding performance in official inspections, conducted on behalf of the Government by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). The QAA has awarded us no fewer than six 'excellent' teaching scores in a row for Media, Biosciences, Nursing, Psychology and Design.
Luton and Bedford are truly cosmopolitan community. The towns offer worship facilities for all faiths, including a chaplaincy within the University. There are numerous shops and restaurants which offer cuisine from all around the world.
The University has sporting facilities at Luton's Vauxhall Recreation Centre, while the Bedford campus enjoys two fully equipped new gyms and the nearby Bedford Athletics Stadium. Our sports teams have seen much success in recent years in university leagues.
We continue to invest in the quality of our students experience, having spent £5.5m on a new Media Arts centre at the Luton campus. Among the first students to make use of these facilities is a group of journalists and PR practitioners from Beijing, studying for the MA in Media Management in preparation for the 2008 Olympic Games. The Bedford Polhill campus is undergoing a £34m redevelopment programme including £8m state of art sports science labs and a new 280-seat theatre
Accommodation is guaranteed to all first-year students and may also be available in subsequent years to those who require it. All of our accommodation is modern, purpose-built and located within a few minutes walk of the main teaching buildings. All students have their own single study bedroom, with wireless internet access. Students at the Bedford Polhill campus will benefit from the upcoming £20m ensuite halls of residence to be completed in 2007.
The Student Union provides clubs and facilities to meet all interests. There are international student associations for our African, Caribbean, Chinese, Islamic, Sikh students, among many others.
