Hi there

Great to hear that you are interested in Marine biology here at Bangor.

It's a great course. You could chat to some of our students on Unibuddy to find out more:

I'm happy to answer any questions you may have on here too

Hello.

I am a Marine Biology MSci student at Bangor. Just completed my first year. I am enjoying myself so far. As far as work goes, I've done six modules and only one of them was a pain in the ass (Environment Data and Analysis, or statistics to the civilians). These modules have been a mix between lectures, like Organismal Diversity, and practical sessions such as Marine Bio Prac 1. There has been a good balance between them. Unfortunately we didn't get to do any field trips this semester due to the weather being shocking and Covid happening, but previous years have reported them to be enjoyable and the field trips we did during semester one were informative and fun.

Support from the university has been great as well. I have very good resources at my disposal in the libraries, lecture halls, labs, sports halls, mental health and wellbeing support etc. The staff are always around when you need assistance. My personal tutor provides good support as well. Accommodation is clean, modern, safe, and has everything we need (I was also pleasantly surprised by the internet speed). I stay is St Mary's in the Tudno Townhouses with fellow mature students.

The area is pretty and well worth exploring. Joining Bangor Uni's clubs and societies are a great way to do this, all of which are free to join and partake in for the most part (for example, if we scuba dive in the local quarry we have to pay entry fees etc but access to Bangor pool and borrowing gear is free with the club. Training is not free as it is PADI run).

I whole heartedly believe it was a good choice. If you have any other questions, feel free to drop me a message.

Yes, I'd recommend a visit just to see the area if nothing else. Good luck with your A Levels and if you chose us, see you in September
