Has anyone been to bangor, what is it like, is it as remote and small as people say?? :confused
yes i was in it about three months ago its pretty pathetic!
where are you from?
ps dnt take the piss outta me im avin a blonde moment
Its got a good nightlife and there are quite a few shops i.e topshop, boots, debenhams, etc. etc. But since I live quite near, its too close. I personally wouldn't recommend it.
Visit an open day, then you can see for yourself what it's like.
If you want a small uni which has a contained social life it is the place for you. If you are a party animal I wouldnt bother. It isnt as bad as some of the people in these forums say.
I think that most of the unis in the uiniversity of wales with the exception of Cardiff and Swansea (which is because they are in cities) have lower entry grades which gives people the impression that they are crap but the entry grades are to attract more people because people get put off by the isolated locations.
Bangor is good for sports and some other subjects
Aber is very good for politics, English, Law and probably some other subjects that I cant think of right now.
Check out the virgin alternative uni guide because this gives quite accurate reviews of the smaller unis.
