Ranked No.1 in the UK for Accounting & Finance

As the top university in Wales, Bangor University has an excellent track record in many disciplines – No. 2 in the UK for Electronic Engineering; No. 2 for Celtic Studies; No. 7 for Psychology… You will be assured of excellent teaching across departments with a highly engaged staff and faculty. As a study abroad student, you will also have the support of Arcadia staff in the London Center to help you settle in and enjoy your semester.

Bangor University is located between the snow-capped mountains of Snowdonia and the rugged, beautiful coastline of North Wales, recently named one of the top ten regions on the planet to visit in 2017 by "Lonely Planet." The university has a thriving students union offering dozens of clubs and societies to choose from, including StormFM Radio, and sports such as lacrosse, biking, paintball, mountaineering, kayaking. If you enjoy your independence and are attracted to a slower pace of life, with a scenic mix of friendly rural and urban living where you get to know the locals, then Bangor could be just what you’re looking for.

I hope that more students take advantage of all that Wales has to offer; it's such a different environment and experience. ”

  • Multi-million dollar renovation of facilities on-campus such as the soon to be completed Pontio Arts and Innovation Center and the Mass Glas sports center.

  • Largest Ocean Science Department in Europe - Spring students can work on Bangor’s ocean-going research vessel and research center on the Isle of Anglesey. Plus, a new teaching and lab facility opens Fall '15.

  • Listed as the most affordable city in the UK, Bangor's low cost of living and practically nonexistent pollution is an interesting alternative to major UK cities – yet big city life in London is still only an easy train ride away.

  • Bangor is ranked No. 1 in student experience in Wales, and No. 7 in the United Kingdom.
