Located in the stunning natural landscape of North Wales, our rich academic history began in 1884. To date, we have built a welcoming academic community of around 10,000 students with a reputation for quality teaching and excellent student support. Our staff are at the forefront of their disciplines and channel key industry insights into an innovative and up-to-date curriculum, valuing the importance of contact time between students and staff as part of the postgraduate learning experience. Whether you’re striving for a brighter future, embarking on a career change, or aiming to take your next career leap, our diverse range of courses across the arts, humanities and sciences are designed to empower you to master your future.

Flexible learning options and funding available

We offer postgraduate taught courses on both a full-time and part-time basis in most cases, so you can fit your studies around your life. Our selection of distance learning courses, as well as ‘blended’ courses that combine remote and face-to-face study opportunities, allow you to personalise your learning journey further.

We uphold a longstanding belief that further education should be available to students from all economic backgrounds, and each year we award a range of scholarships and bursaries to new and returning students – on both merit-based and needs-based criteria. This includes our Postgraduate Access Bursary of up to £1,000 and a selection of subject-specific and sports scholarships. The Welsh government offers a selection of bursaries when you study for a Master’s degree in Wales and Student Finance also offers a combination of loans and grants to support you through your studies. We also offer flexible payment plans so you can spread the cost of your qualification over the year. Our dedicated Money Support Unit is on-hand to give you advice and guidance on all aspects of postgraduate funding.

Student life

Bangor student life comes with the choice of over 150 clubs, societies and volunteering projects that are completely free to join, as well as the mountains and sea of North Wales being the perfect backdrop for an adventure-filled experience. We also have a very active volunteering community, giving you the opportunity to get involved in a range of projects throughout the year. What’s more, our small class sizes and close-knit student community create a friendly and inclusive university environment.

As a postgraduate student, you’ll have access to dedicated halls of residence, living with other postgraduate students. We offer single-occupancy accommodation to suit different budgets, including standard, en-suite, studio flats and townhouses, all conveniently located within easy walking distance of both the main teaching venues and the city centre. We guarantee accommodation to postgraduate applicants who apply for a full-time course in September at our Bangor campus and achieve unconditional status before 7 August 2024. If you apply for a place in Halls before the 7 August deadline, you will be able to choose the room type you prefer.
