If you are thinking about going to Bangor, think twice. It's north of nowhere, finding a job here is like playing Russian roulette since hundreds of people are applying even for housekeeping jobs and if you will have any kind of issues that will require something from the university.... well... good luck with that because they won't help.

If you go to the money support office, they will tell you it's your problem and they don't care. They are so nice there, that lots of people told me they were crying after visiting them. I haven't heard about anybody they would actually help.

If you need career advice, they will tell you to get a job... because that's something you wouldn't know without them. There is only one advisor that will try to help, but others are useless.

I had a personal tutor, I asked for her for help because I transferred directly to the second year. She never answered me, I tried to get a different personal tutor... never happened.

After months of not getting any sort of help, I developed psychological issues and I couldn't sleep. I was sent to a psychiatrist and by the psychiatrist back to uni.

I was thinking about changing course or leaving, so I was told to get in touch with them to discuss my options... no answer from them at all.

This university doesn't care at all, you are just a number and if you will have any financial issues, they will ask you to pay every single penny (literally).

I am sorry to hear this. You should put your own personal wellbeing first and consider other options. University will always there as an option for you when you feel ready, no need to rush - take your time to find the best one that suits you.

Sure, sure, sure... no doubt, no doubt.

Would that make any difference to contact you?

I have been trying to solve my situation for weeks, but I feel like I am talking to bureaucratic robots with predefined answers sending me from point A, to point B, to point C where they bin it and after everything you tell me that you feel sorry about that but there is nothing you can do because of your bureaucracy that would make literally zero difference in my case, but it would closed case for you anyway, right?

ok, I did.

I am really curious about the outcome, but something is telling me I know it already.
