    Depends what kind of nightlife you are used to but I have not heard many people complain. The main problem at the moment is the lack of a practical student nightclub but that will hopefully be sorted out soon Certainly there is plenty of places to go on a night out with regular student nights at the clubs in Bangor.

    Yeah i heard about that, is that to replace the SU bars whist the Pontio is being built? I'm used to a small town nightlife so Bangor might even be an improvement

    Same here - not a lot of clubbing goes on in this neck of the woods - it's just bars but nightlife is what you make it.

    Anybody who is thinking of going to bangor - Do it.
    I'm here, I applied firm through ucas and got rejected because i can spell DUDE with my a levels... I'm a D*ck and didn't put enough effort in in year 13 - I'd been in school too long and whilst it sounds like escapism, it just wasn't stimulating enough for me. I'm lucky - I was accepted through clearing to do a different course, which I'm now happy about.

    Part time job wise, I'm lucky. I work for a well known shop fitting stereo's and was lucky enough to get a transfer. Others might not have that there, Not to worry - The only welsh i know is Bore Da! (Hello) and I'm doing alright.

    IF you do get to bangor, Make sure your accomodation is on Ffriddeodd. College road site is pretty shabby, it's where i live - the upside is it's pretty much bang in the center of the town.


    If anyone needs to know anything - Give me a shout!

    Basically yes however it has not proved THAT popular due to people having to get a bus etc etc, however they are hoping to convert Robinson Building on Deiniol Road into a clubbing/student venue as well but there were problems with aquiring the planning permission, not sure of the current state of this though.

    Hey, I've got offers for English Language and Psychology (260points) and for English Language with Media Studies(280points), either of which could be my first, unless I get an offer from Essex. No idea which one to go for. The weird thing is I can't find the one with psychology anywhere apart from ucas, anybody know what's up with that?

    Good Choice Bangor has one of the best Schools of Psychology in the country (coming from an entirely unbiased point of view, even though I work there )

    That's not going to happen. No Money. The Welsh Assembly government are funding Pontio, the university is still poor!

    I would of thought it would be done by the university run company which is currently in charge of hendre, anyway would think if they did not have the money they would not of bothered going through the whole rigmorol of aquiring planning permission?

    This future of the SU has been known about for a pretty long time. It was purely a lack of thought and care on the university's part that we find ourselves in the current situation.

    Spend more money on the psychology department, disregard everything else. Sigh.
