As a leading University with an international reputation for teaching and research as well as a strong commitment to the economic, social and cultural well-being of Wales, Bangor University is proud to be at the heart of the new Menai Science Park.
We are committed to bringing our expertise, facilities and people into play for the benefit of the region. Our strong academic performance allows us to work with not only our students, but also local individuals, organisations and businesses to develop their knowledge and skills.
For over one hundred and thirty years we have been at the forefront of teaching, learning and knowledge creation. Drawing students and staff from all over the world, we offer a vast pool of experience and capacity from our very diverse campus in Bangor as well as through our extensive collaboration with international universities.
We work in partnership with a wide range of organisations, businesses and community groups and we are also developing a new Arts and Innovation Centre which will bring growth and opportunity to the area.
Through our research, we have a major impact around the world according to the independent national assessment of research quality. In fact, more than three-quarters of Bangor’s research is either world-leading or internationally excellent
. Our Research Impact Case Studies
illustrates some additional examples of this high-quality research.
From the major contribution we make to protecting the environment, bilingualism, and improving health and wellbeing it is clear that the research carried out by Bangor academics is having a major economic impact as well bringing significant benefits to the lives of people around the world.
These are remarkably impressive results for us as an institution, and we’re determined to work with businesses to share this knowledge and expertise and to create wealth and opportunity for people in north Wales and beyond.
Bangor University has over 10,000 students and 2,000 staff based in 23 Academic Schools
