I have made lifelong friends here and it has been like a dream i am living. It has helped me grow in to a much stronger, confident and positive person.

The thing i love the most about my course is access to facilities which hard to access normally and its practical aspect. The focus on giving real life experience rather than just theoretical basis is the key point for me of studying here at bangor university. And of course the support i get from my lecturers for everything.
